Our 5 y.o. male boxer has an swollen lymph node/lump in his neck which showed up suddenly 1 -1/2 - 2 weeks ago. He's been the the vet - the vet fears lymphoma though initial test results via aspirate are negative for cancer, parasites etc...next steps could be either PCR DNA test or a biopsy...He's otherwise healthy (although he does have epilepsy)...

Any suggestions or feedback as to what we might do (either test? just wait?) would be greatly appreciated...

We've begun a round of antioxidants/vitamins and plan to start him on the "cancer diet..."

How is he doing? Any news? After the holidays, you might want to post in Boxer Town. We have several pups there who have been through something similar.
