Lymph Node Self Exam

by Tom on July 9th, 2009

I’m fairly certain that we’ll get good data on this cancer from a biopsy of the neck lymph nodes that the PET scan pointed out.

I say this because I can feel a couple nodes when I press beneath my jaw bone. It’s fascinating, creepy, and scary all at once. I’m pretty sure they’ve got the bad cells in them; they’re enlarged and pretty firm.

On the plus side, this might mean I get to keep my spleen!

I’m glad I’ll have something to show the surgeon during our consultation tomorrow.
