Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

Occasionally i sweat a bit when i sleep. still doctors said nothing to worry about.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Thanks for the question and coming here. I would like to have few important details. How long you have swollen lymph nodes? Where these nodes are? They have done any investigations? History of weight loss? Your age and family history of cancer?

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
