Hello Ardiana, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all I want to make sure in advance, do you mean the lump that appears on the left hand and thigh is a lump because of lymphoma according to the diagnosis from the doctor who treats you?
Lymphoma is cancer of the lymphatic system or lymph system which has an important function in the body's defense system / human immunity. The lymphatic system includes lymph nodes, spleen, thymus gland and bone marrow. Lymphomas can occur anywhere in the lymphatic system. Because this cancer is in the lymphatic system which is spread in various organs in the human body, treatment is not only limited to the removal of lymph node lumps. Usually the removal of the lymph nodes is done for diagnostic purposes which is to be examined under a microscope to see the cells in the lymph node. Therapy for lymphoma depends on the type of lymphoma that is owned, but in general the therapy consists of administering chemotherapy drugs, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, and targeted therapy.
If indeed there is no definite diagnosis of the cause of the lump you are referring to, you should check with your doctor first to ascertain what lump you have. For the diagnosis of lumps need to be known clearly several things, for example:
The exact location of the lump (if the legs must be clarified whether in the groin, near the joint, thigh, or other location)
Presence of signs of inflammation in the lump
Other symptoms experienced
And checks must also be made directly on the lump to be able to find out the consistency, the surface of the bump, boundary bump, mobility of the lump, etc.
The cause of a lump in the leg can vary, for example:
Enlarged lymph nodes
Benign skin tumors such as lipomas, atheroma cysts
Topus in patients with hyperuricemia
Therapy for each cause of the lump can vary. Not all of these causes must be managed (either with drugs or surgery), some can be lost with treatment alone, but there are also those that must be operated on / removed. Therefore, to find out clearly, it helps you to see yourself directly to the doctor.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
