How To Distinguish The Symptoms Of Glandular TB And Lymphoma?
Hello, I want to ask, I have had swelling in the neck for 2 months and have done x-rays, labs and ultrasound. But the results are different there are indications that there is a lymph gland tb. I also went to a doctor of internal medicine and surgery, and the doctor did not know for sure my disease was only given medicine to get hot and for infection, there was no action and was only told to wait until 2 weeks before returning to control, whereas when I went to another surgeon I immediately recommended for biopsy. Do you think according to the doctor, do you need a biopsy as soon as possible? Or should I wait for my previous doctor? Thank you
Hello, Ms. Thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com. Swelling of the lymph nodes in the neck can indeed lead to both of the conditions you mentioned. And to be sure, of course, is to carry out additional checks that can serve to better specify the possibility of that happening. And of course other than that it needs to be adjusted to the symptoms that appear on your body. If we suggest, doing a biopsy will better determine the likelihood of a clinical condition occurring.
Biopsy is a medical procedure that serves to detect abnormalities in body tissues using a microscope. What is assessed is a picture of body tissue taken to diagnose certain diseases, especially cancer, because with this examination the network can be determined whether there are signs leading to malignancy or only leads to normal chronic disease. However, before a biopsy is usually performed the doctor will conduct a physical examination and other supporting examinations such as ultrasound, CT scan, or MRI to determine the location and type of tissue affected by the disease. We recommend consulting an oncologist, so that you can find out and discuss whether you need to do a biopsy or other additional examinations. Thus we can convey, hopefully our information can be useful for you. thanks.
