Question: Swollen neck lymph nodes since 2004-2008
|sickSue - Fri Aug 29, 2008 8:16 pm||
I have a question,
I had a biopsy a couple of years ago, my regular doctor ordered a deep neck lymph node biopsy, the ENT surgeon did a biopsy on the tail of the Parotid gland instead and the diagnosis was chronic sailandentis. What is the difference between a lymph node biopsy and the tail of the Parotid gland.
Can a biopsy of the tail of the Parotid gland tell you if you have lymphoma and could a neck lymph node biopsy tell you if you if you have Primary Sjogrens Syndrome?
