I was diagnosed with CML on January of 2014. I have been on Sprycel since February, 2014. I currently for about a year take 100mg/day. I have been developing lymph node/gland swelling along my left side neck from behind the ear to the collarbone. 1 biopsy so far showed reactive, no evidence of non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. They may do a 2nd biopsy. I live in Tyler, Texas and am using Texas Oncology doctors in both Tyler and at Baylor Sammons in Dallas. Both use Texas Oncology doctors. The node swelling has been increasing for about 8 months. I am a 59 year old male and gave quite a bit of anxiety. I feel it is from the Sprycel. My CML numbers look good so far and no other side effects. I need any help/advice I can find. I also am considering driving south to MDAnderson in Houston. I am interested also in potential cancer altering supplements.I am very anxious about the lymph glands and see some mention in discussions regarding a concern with Sprycel in this arena. I hope an alternative treatment is there if needed.Thank You and God Bless You.
