welcome to HCM i am Dr. Das.
your report means you have only reactive lymphadenitis which can occur in any infective condition even in common cold. so you have nothing to worry. just continue antibiotic if you have any infection. If the lymph nodes are palpable after completion of antibiotic course then repeat the fnac procedure and review with that
