I was diagnosed with Kikuchi's disease a number of years ago. I had a lump on the side of my neck that kept on getting bigger. An ear nose and throat specialist did surgery to remove it. Biopsy confirmed that it was Kikuchi's disease. The ear nose and throat specialist informed me that I would have these lumps throughout my body for the rest of my life. Is this true? According to what I have been reading online it is supposed to go away after just a few months? I have a new lump on the other side of my neck now that has been getting bigger and it hurts. I had an MRI done and they said that it is only 1 cm wide on the inside but on the outside it was 5cm by 6cm. Do you think that I should have this removed?
