I have lymph node...

I have lymph node 2.3x 0.4mm (the only one measured) plus several more found in my neck and jaw line. They have been there for going on 2 years and surgeon just refused to biopsy because i dont show "classic " symptoms. I only have the continued swollen lymph and very exhausted for no reason. When should they be removed for futher evaluation.

Doctor's Assistant: What are your symptoms? Have you used any medication for this?

Reapeted antibiotics and prednisone but they have no effect on lymph node

Doctor's Assistant: Have you used anything besides prednisone for this?

Just random antibiotics with md saying maybe an infection. But it has been 2 years and i still feel more and more tired for no reason.

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

Recent seizure and stroke with no previous history of either. After the stroke and seizure i staryed having low thyroid levels. That all started in 3 of 2017. I have endometriosis, bilateral lumpectomies to breast that were benign. Lymph node problem started in 2016.

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.
