Fluid and enlarged nodes in the head and Neck

I am currently awaiting a biopsy to confirm lymphoma due to an enlarged lymph node in my left leg, that showed active involvement on a pet scan. I also had involvement on the tongue, throat and esophagus on the scan. I also have severe pressure in the head, swollen lymph nodes and what appears to be fluid in my head- so bad that the pain makes it impossible to lay my head on a pillow, could this also be malignancy in my brain and throat. And what would cause inflamed nodes throughout my body, neck, head, armpits groin and etc, and the fluid in my skull.

Hello~I hope that you have received your results from your biopsy and that all was well. I am not really qualified to answer your question as I am not a doctor, I am glad you have seen your PCP about it, for issues like this, it is always best to see a professional.

Unfortunately, I am not a medical professional.  Sounds like you probably have an infection in your body somewhere that haz built up and spread to your blood stream, which is very dangerous.  I hope you are being treated by now and are recovering well.
