Hodgkins or non-hodgkins

  1. My sister-in-law has been found to have 9 lymphomas in the lymph nodes in her bronchial tubes, lung area. They said they are in clumps of 3 each. In looking on the internet I seem to have found that the possibilites are some sort of Hodgkins or Non-hodkins lymphoma. Her only other symptoms are coughing, shortness of breath and itching of the skin. Could someone help me out with this. I know you cannot make a diagnosis but any information would be helpful. They have told her she has to have an endoscopy done tomorrow, and that her treatment options would be chemotherapy, radiation, or heavy doses of steroids. I really appreciate you guys responding to me. Thanks loads!!!!
