So I keep getting the "knots" on the extreme upper part of my legs (like where my legs meet my body) so I go to the doc who sends me to a surgen. The surgen says its lymph nodes and he has to remove it. So last monday they remove it in a simple surgery I was even awake so no big deal. They think it might be "cat scratch disease" cause I have 3 cats. Well the pathology reports come back and they have NO FREAKING IDEA WHAT IT IS!!! So the doc says well its not cancer and not cat scratch disease so everytime one swells up well jsut take it out. WTF They are always swollen and they hurt like hell not to mention thats my immune system and like I have time to be at the hospital getting surgery once a week. I'm not sure what to do I wanna know what causing these "knots" that hurt so bad. I'm just wondering of its some kinda allergy or mold issue. I may go back to my family doc and see it he will send me to an allergist. Ok thanks for letting me vent I am just so aggrivated about this.

That's why doctors call their offices a "practice!" Have you checked sites like WebMD? They have some good info there... I sympathize, but don't stop insisting on an answer... If you don't get an acceptable answer, get a second opinion or a different doctor!

It seems like the quality of care by doctors is going rapidly downhill. I am not too sure if it the same down in the states, but up here in Canada the physicians get paid by how many patients they see in a day, so they make 10 x more if they rush 10 people through in ten minutes then if they spend 10 minutes of quality time with a single patient. As such, after waiting days to see a physician, you get into the examination room and before you can even say what is wrong with you, they have have scribbled out a useless, but expensive, presciption and are on the way out the door. From my own experience, physicians in walk in clinics are the worst culprits for this.

Like you say, it can be very frustrating.

Not even qualified to go there, but what I do know is it NEVER hurts to get another opinion. There a lots of doctors out there, go find one that isn't so knife happy.
BTW, you gonna make it to my annual Bluegrass Fieros Cookout this year?

You could be having a hormonial problem. Believe it or not, ask you OBGYN. They know more about reoccuring problems with women than any GP Doctor does.

Are you having regular periods? Taking in birth control pills?

I got that once, from a kitten. The Lymph node swelled up in my neck, and they did a biopsy. They removed it, and i never had any issues after that.

A lymph node usually swells up when you are fighting an infection... and they sometimes get blockued up and plugged with crap.

There are other diseases related to sollen lymph nodes, most are not pretty, they fall in the HIV/Cancer family of stuff.

Have you ever had Mono/Epstein Barr?

UPDATE:
Went back to my GP and he said well since its not cat scratch disease or cancer we are going to send you to a dermatologist and an allergist. BTW I already saw my GYN about it and he's never seen anything like it before and its not a GYN issue and no I'm not on birth control I've been "fixed" for the next 10 years. My gGP put me on oral and topical antibiotics freaking 4000mg of antibiotics a day plus the topical cream cause my white blood cell count is higher then normal. Actually the antibiotics is making the swelling go away a little so they might be working. It could be black mold poisioning too. I just want a freaking answer.
