Brief Answer:
Additional tests required

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.
These markers are positive and suggest that there are abnormal lymphocytes in you axilla lymph node which may suggest some serious blood disease such as lymphoma but also may be reactive lymph node as a result of some infection. In every case,additional tests are required and include blood cytometry and bone marrow biopsy. This would reveal if this is lymphoma or something else. Wish you good health. Regards.
