I am sorry to hear you're having concerns with Lymphoma. When I was on 6mp, I was sent to a hematologist to get checked out and they wanted to do a bone marrow biopsy. I decided to stop the drugs and see if the symptoms improve and at the same time I kept monitoring my blood - things went back to normal in my case. Like you, I am not at all fond of crazy tests. My symptoms weren't lymph node involvement though, it was just abnormal blood counts and fatigue (which is quite normal for me). I don't know what you can expect so far as tests but I hope it's nothing terrible. Things seem to have gotten easier and less invasive in the medical system over the years. Step one is to go get the information. If you're not comfortable with the doctor, see someone else. You can go on multiple consults. We have had a few members who have had lymphoma due to UC meds. One was a moderator, Madcat. I am not sure if you remember him? If you look him up you can find some info. He beat it... I am sure it's nothing so do not stress.
