Dear friend, welcome to Healthcaremagic!
I am Dr. Prasad Akole (Critical Care Expert- and am glad to address to your query here.

The FNAC (Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology) of the lymph node shows non-specific chronic granulomatous inflammation (no distinct granulomas seen). There is no cancer seen.
This is suggestive of an inflamed lymph node for a long time.
You need to finish a course of antibiotic and see if the glands (lymph nodes in the neck) shrink.

The FNAC is not always 100% confirmatory. A lymph node biopsy is done if there is no response to antibiotics.

Differentials may include TB, chronic infections, lymphomas…and so on.
Please post all clinical and test results details here to enable me to give a better advice.

Diet has no role here as per this report.
Please be guided by your treating doctor.

I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily. I would be glad to answer any further queries. Take care and please keep me informed of your progress at
Good Luck!
