I initially went to the gp two months ago after finding a lump in my neck, and was sent for several blood tests, all were fine aside from being folate deficient and had a crp level of 15. Other symptoms were drenching night sweats and fatigue.
I then started with severe left side pain, it felt like my ribs were bruised and the pain was between my hip and ribs also. I had a day in hospital and had a chest xray, and abdomen ultrasound as they thought it was kidney stones. All was ok and the pain went away after about 10 days.
In the meantime I was referred to haematology, the consultant appeared quite dismissive and said that if it was lymphoma I would be more poorly than I am and that night sweats on their own were not an indication of lymphoma. He did a general feel of my neck and discharged me pending CT scan results.
The appointment for CT is on 25th July and has been booked for Thorax, Abdomen and Pelvis - I am confused why it has not been booked for a neck scan considering that is where the lumps are - there are now two smaller ones on the left side of my neck and a larger one above my collar bone.
If they do not scan my neck, is it likely that lymphoma could be picked up in other areas of my body, or do I need to try and ask the consultant to change where they scan?
This is my first time posting so I apologise for it being lengthy.
