Does Hodgkin's lymphoma cause elevated CD3 and CD57 NK cells?

Hello doctor,

I recently tested positive for Lyme disease. I have a history of stage IIA lymphoma, 15 years ago, and I am in full remission ever since. My reports, that I have attached, show elevated CD3 and CD57 NK cells. The lab recommended that an oncologist looks at this for a possible Hodgkin's connection. Could this be a recurrence of cancer? Or is this a sign of cancer that was in my body before? What do you recommend?

How can I reverse fluid retention in my nose and lips?

Hi doctor,

I am a 22 year old, and every morning my nose and lips appear swollen due to fluid retention, but as the day goes, it usually subsides. However recently, it is not going away, which means that every time my nose swells up, it remains that way. Does this mean the drainage system is blocked? How do I get around this? How can I reverse fluid retention in my nose? I am not on any medication and do not have any health issues.

Is there any medicine to overcome the effects of alcohol?

Hi doctor,

I am contacting you regarding an uncle of mine. He is 40 years old. His health issues are related to alcohol (beer). He drinks quite a few times a week. When he starts drinking, he drinks a few liters before stopping. He also smokes, but only sometimes. He finds heavy breathing after just minor physical activity. In his medical history, he has high blood pressure, high cholesterol, anemia, anxiety disorder, severe headache, and sometimes constipation. He had also an ulcer earlier and was recommended Omeprazole. He found this medicine to be helpful for him in the beginning only, but not now anymore.

I know for a fact that it is best for him to quit drinking alcohol or at least reduce the amount of it. He has been advised for this several times. But, he is addicted to it, and is not easy for him to quit. My question is specifically related to alcohol. Is there any medication he can take before or after intake of alcohol which can be helpful for him in kind of safe drinking? He takes Omeprazole but is not satisfied with the results.
