Hello Mrs. Elis! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
FNAB or fine needle aspiration biopsy is a technique that looks at the cells in the lump that are removed using a needle. The collected cells are viewed under a microscope by an anatomical pathologist. Determining the diagnosis in patients cannot be based solely on the conclusions of the FNAB results. An anatomical pathologist usually writes a description of the cells that are visible under a microscope. The description will be adjusted to the results of interviews and direct examinations by the doctor who treats the patient. The doctor who treats the patient collects data from all examinations to determine the patient's diagnosis.
The conclusion that the mother presented only explained that there was inflammation of the lymph nodes with granuloma tissue which was probably due to a specific process in the left neck area. Inflammation of the lymph nodes can be caused by various diseases, both infectious and non-infectious. It is better if you bring these results to a doctor who recommends an examination. As I mentioned, the results of the FNAB examination can be important data for doctors to determine the diagnosis of your child, so that the therapy given can be in accordance with the patient's condition.
That is the explanation from me. I hope this helps.
