N1 in pathological report means you have lymphnode found possitively after surgery in specimen. it means you are high risk of relapse means if you don't take adjuvant(further ) treatment chances of disease to come back is high,.
for that reason for disease to remain controlled further require chemotherapy(5 FU Based) course.
