Enlarged lymph nodes can be worrisome. That is why it is important to work with a highly regarded surgeon who listens and cares. Dr. Dasari’s lymph node biopsy treatments and patient-centered approach has helped thousands of patients find relief.
Lymph nodes can increase in size during periods of illness, particularly if the body is exposed to environmental allergens, viruses, and bacteria.
Typically when lymph nodes grow to be larger than 1 cm, they capture the attention of clinicians. When they continue to grow, harden, and persist over several months’ time, cancer can be a real possibility.
To determine if a lymph node represents malignancy, a lymph node biopsy is performed. Sometimes a surgical biopsy is superior to a needle-aspiration for diagnostic accuracy. Typically adequate tissue volume and preserved architecture can be achieved by surgical biopsy. The samples are submitted to pathologists who then examine the tissue for cancerous cells using special protocols (e.g. Lymphoma, melanoma, breast).
