Hard Fibrous Lymph Node
I am undergoing tests on a large, hard lymph node on  my neck just under my jaw bone, just ahead of the end of the jaw bone.  During the fine needle biopsy they were unable to get a sample of anything as the Doctor said the mass was very fibrous.  I am having an ultrasound on Monday and then I will be back to my Doctor for the results.  He has told me that no matter what is found, the node will have to be removed as it is not normal.  It is quite large and hard but not really painful.  Could this be a sign of lymphoma or something similar?  My doctor seems concerned.  I am a 56 year old female with no family history of lymphoma however all of my paternal uncles and my father all died of cancer.  I know that you can not diagnose but I have no idea what this could be and I would just like a little heads up as to what is could be.
thanks
