Hello Keong,
Welcome to our club. Unfortunately, most of us are not able to explain certain parts of the pathology report. They are too technical and we do not understand them. You should make sure your doctor explains what "not identified" means and anything else you do not understand.
Best of luck,

Not identified means they found nothing bad there where they looked but there could be something which they have not found yet. So far, it is good news that they have not found anything bad in your lymph nodes. We hope it stays that way. Organic diet and daily exercise are very good ideas.
