I just had a full node removal of a deep cervical node (~3cm) two days ago. The doctor said that the preliminary results of the biopsy looked good, but that it had to be sent out for further examination. I am wondering what types of results others have gotten from biopsies (to give me a range of options) and whether anyone got a diagnosis of lymphoma after a preliminary "looks good" from the doctor. My followup appointment isn't for a few days and I am just curious about what the range of possibilities is.
