Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...
My brother has just had a lump removed from his lymph node in his neck (despite CT scan and biopsy no diagnosis given) and has been told that the needle test found granulomatous lymphadenitis ...is this likely to be cancer?
hello dear. As per your details, granulomatous lymphadenitis is not cancer. it is a reaction of nodes to certain infections like tuberculosis. But if on the basis of history and examination doctors are suspecting cancer, then a repeat biopsy can be under taken or a review by another doctor of the initial biopsy. Hope that you understand now. thanks
