Back from Biopsy

I had posted previously asking questions about excision of groin lymph node. The Dr. ended up taking out three lymph nodes but told my family they looked benign to him. I should have the results in 3 to 4 days. So, it does sound good. I do wonder why he would have taken three out when only one had been swollen for a long time.

I think they take out more just to make sure they have enough sample. I just had a biopsy on my neck. The one that is swollen in my neck is about 3cm. however there were 2 smaller ones surrounding it so they just took the smaller one. Well it ended up not being enough so they went back in, took a smaller one and carved out part of the larger one. So don't fret about the amount, they just want to be sure and hopefully for you it will be the only biopsy you'll have to have.

Good luck!
