Answer

Clinical lymphadenopathy may develop (stage IIA), sometimes with progression of the plaques to form tumors (stage IIB), or tumors may form from plaques in the absence of lymphadenopathy (stage IIB). Either process usually takes years, or even decades, to develop. Once tumors form, they are prone to ulceration.
