I was just diagnoised with PLC Pityriasis Lichenoides Chronica (skin biopsy)

Right anterior thigh - patchy lichenoid and slight spongiotic dermatitis with rare eosinophils
Note: The differential diagnosis includes a drug eruption, pityriasis lichenoides spectrum disorder and, less likely, pityriasis rosea.

Microscopic description:
There are slight hyperkeratosis including small mounds of parakeratosis and a predominantly superficial perivascular and patchy lichenoid inflammatory cell infiltrate consisting of lymphocytes, histiocytes and rare eosinophils that obscures the dermo-epidermal junction in foci where there are occasional necrotic keratinocytes. There are extravasated erythrocytes. There is slight spongosis.

The dermatologist put me on Tetracycline 500 mg 1 2x /day for 4 wks
and then 1 1x/day for another for weeks.
wants to see me in 3 months and then wants to follow up every six months with blood work for lymphoma etc.
Do people usually get Lymphomas with PLC? Can I be assured I don't have lymphoma right now? Anything else I can do? Thank you.
Best Regards.
