Abnormal Cells Found

Today MDA did a CT Scan and Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) of Ann's "tonsil". It turns out not to be a "tonsil" after all, but some type of mass that just happens to be near the lymph nodes on her jaw line.

Our doctor indicated that the mass looked like a lump of necrotic tissue on the CT Scan.

The FNA of the mass showed it contained abnormal cells. Not enough were collected to perform flow cytometery so slides are being prepared. They will be ready Wednesday.

I would like to be optimistic, but this all but rules out GVHD, bacteria or viruses as the source of Ann's low grade fever, stomach cramps and diarrhea.
