Dear Maps
Having the biopsy is the right thing to do - the biopsy will give you the reason why they are swollen. It could be TB, or a virus, or a problem with your white blood cells - speculation will just make you more scared. Try to keep calm - most of the times it is nothing more than a resistant germ causing the problem. You can do nothing about it at them moment and your body does not need unneccesary stress at this stage.
