I have follicular lymphoma, grade 3. My only sign is adenopathy in my neck (the biggest node is 2 cm) for two years. I had a CT scan in March 2007 and another one mid-October to see the progression. My biggest node is now 0.9 cm. I haven’t received any treatment yet. Is it possible that the nodes shrink like that? My oncologist seems to wonder if I really have cancer.
That’s good news! Spontaneous shrinkage in follicular lymphoma has been well-documented, though the vast majority of patients will ultimately have progression of disease and require treatment.
There is a lot of ongoing research to try to identify which patients have disease that progresses slowly, but at this time it is not clearly understood.
