The other shoe has dropped.

Hey guys, short update.

This Wednesday I was finally able to see a doctor about the symptoms I've mentioned having since June. He confirmed that there is definitely something there in my neck, and it's not just a tendon or my imagination. He was able to get a CT scan as well as a variety of labwork ordered for me immediately after the appointment.

Although I was scheduled to see him again next Wednesday, he called me back on the lab results.

While he says that my lab results are good, the CT scan is consistent with lymphoma. They saw a large lymph node and a larger mass behind it.

While this doesn't mean I have lymphoma for sure, they're going to need to do a biopsy on me to determine what exactly it is they're dealing with. They're also not sure what kind of lymphoma it could be, whether it's Hodgkin's Lymphoma (which my mother had before she had me) or if non-Hodgkin's.

I'll keep you guys informed, but I was honestly expecting an outcome like this.
