Lymph Nodes Spawning New Nodules?

Yesterday, on my way to softball, I felt around behind the swollen lymph nodes - I have some swelling that's behind my shoulder (maybe the latissimus dorsi area?).  And discovered about 5 or 6 smaller (maybe half a centimeter) nodules surrounding the larger swollen lymph nodes.

What the heck?

My guess is that these are all regular lymph nodes that are also inflamed because the fight between the Herminator-2 cells and the cancer cells is going on there.  Call it a skirmish on the outskirts of a bigger battle . . .

I'll call one of the study doctors on Monday and see what she says . . . maybe even my own oncologist as well.
