So I just found out after finishing 12 rounds of abvd for classic Hodgkin’s lymphoma, I need a biopsy on one of my lymph nodes in my chest since it like up on a pet scan. Has anyone went for this biopsy before??? Was it always cancer back? I have no idea what to think I was told this is the most curable cancer and now I feel like I’m back at square one!?

My father has gone through VATs procedure in August 2017 - His chest lymph nodes appear to be the only one initially swollen - so they had to take mass from the chest region. 
Specimen was analysed and in his case it turned out to be Non Hodgkins lymphoma - DLBCL . aggressive form. 
I do hope and pray that yours turn out to be anything other than cancer. 

Best regards,
