Question: Ultra sound shows hodgkin’s lymphoma…is it true?

I went to my GP a week ago and he found a lump in my throat, I was sent for a Ultra sound and they found a 1.7Cm X 1.2Cm speculated mass just below the anterior belly of the digastric muscle, I have been sent for a FNA biopsy and blood test the blood test are showing a ESR of 29 and a C-reactive protein of 17. But still awaiting the results for the FNA, My GP advised that he suspects hodgkin’s lymphoma.

I am just wondering if there is any way it cant be?

hodgkins lymphoma is just one possibility. but such lesions can be caused by various other benign causes.
hhistopathology will confirm it though, but personally, i dont feel this to be an hodgkins. seems to be a lymph node infection.
