cervical lymphadenopathy

had a lump in my neck from dec.06  got bigger by oct 07 also 2 new lumps in neck. sent to ENT DR.and ONCOLOGIST did 2 biopsys, one showed something going on but not enought tissue, the other biopsy showed only inflamation (inflammation). Have done ct scan showed only nodes swollen on neck. biopsy was done in oct. 07, in dec. 07 found another new lump. Went for scan, showed numerous and prominent enlarged lymph nodes but radiologist wouldn't do needle biopsy because he thought he would not get a diagnosis.   have to see my oncologist in 5 wks. i am feeling very tired, have headaches, feel cold, get itchy when i get very warm, having problems with my appetite, feel sick at time but am not sick, don't feel like eating at times. gave me tables for the itch on the sheet the diagnosis stated cervical lymphandenopathy.  Could i have leukiema, are any of my symptoms the same for  leukiema?

the labwork and repeated biopsies were not diagnostic for leukemia so i wouldn't worry about it unless the cervical lymphadenopathy changes and worsens
