broach, I am sorry about
the news you have received. I certainly understand why you are frightened and confused. A small percentage of non-Hodgkins lymphomas generate in the intestinal tract. We have one member that does have Crohn's and then developed NHL, I believe in his terminal ileum. After surgery to remove the mass, he under went treatments and the last I read is doing well.
The symptoms of NHL effecting the intestinal tract can be very similar to Crohn's disease. While the news you received is not something anyone wants to hear, it sounds like the doctor has done a great job of getting to the problem early on. Please let us know how the biopsy goes. We will all be thinking of you.
