... really had no symptoms but had a ct scan to see why I was getting a slight pain in the left lower pelvis. Nothing showed up there but what did show were multiple enlarged lymph nodes in the mesentery, which is higher up. I would never have known! ... (6 replies)
... I too would probably get a second opinion, if only to put your mind at rest. I had a small hard lymph node in the groin and when a ct scan was done, it showed up multiple enlarged lymph nodes in the mesentery. ... (6 replies)

... I don't think you can give a general answer to how quickly lymphomas grow. There are so many kinds. I don't have much information about my own as all the enlarged lymph nodes were in the mesentery so I had no idea they were there! ... (10 replies)
... Sorry for the delay in responding. I do not check the boards as regularly as I should! I am sorry that it appears your husband has had a relapse. I have been so lucky with a long remission, coming up to seven years! Each year I have a scan and they continue to show no signs of recurrence. When I was treated in 2006 I had Fludarabine, Cytoxan and Rituximab for six months. Since... (4 replies)
... Hi Just wondered how you are doing & what treatment you have received? My husband sounds very similar to you.

Recent cat scan shows large mass at root of intestine (I am guessing it is the Mesentery as its the only thing I have come up with that... (4 replies)

... ths I was in treatment. I never had the B symptoms and mine was only found when I was experiencing low pelvic pain and, finding nothing, was sent for a scan. The enlarged lymph nodes showed up in my mesentery...nothing to do with the pelvic pain! Life is funny sometimes! ... (11 replies)

Dad has lymphoma
Sep 14, 2007
... done for other things. In your dad's case it was kidney stones. In my case it was while investigating a slight pain in the lower pelvis....nowhere near where my enlarged lymph nodes were in the mesentery! This is because lymphoma can be present for some time without any symptoms at all. I never felt ill at all. ... (5 replies)
... re, especially as you already have prostate cancer. I am nearly your age and also have lymphoma in the mesentery.
