My Bad Mystery Node!

Hello, Friends,
I just got back from the doc a little while ago. My node is only mildly swollen; this, coupled with its location made it impossible to do a needle aspiration to see what it was. I also had xrays to make sure there was no other signs of lymphoma; they were completely clear. The doc and Mom thought that opening me up for a surgical biopsy was too radical without any other indicia this was cancer. So, we are going to redo the physical and ultrasound in a month to see what happens with this node. Paws crossed, and thanks for the purrs.
Your Pal,
Joey, off to the food bowl after being fasted twice in a week!

Sending lots of purrs and pawyers for that naughty node to go away.
Maybe it enlarged from a reaction to something else, like inflammation or infection??

You are correct, WBS, it may be enlarged for another reason. We certainly hope it is a benign one.
