The Results Of A Neck Lump Biopsy Examination?
The doctor please inform me of my biopsy results Main diagnosis: lymph node Microscopic: partially atypical cell smear, pleomorphic relative pleomorphic nucleus chromotin smooth eosinophilic cytoplasm and also the myxoid period Conclusion: c3 (atypical smear).
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Based on the impression obtained from the anatomic pathology examination, the lump which was originally thought to be an enlarged lymph node was in fact a tumor of the salivary glands (pleomorphic adenoma). These tumors are benign tumors that grow slowly, grow only one, does not cause pain, but these benign tumors have the potential to become malignant if left unchecked and not removed.
We recommend that you immediately bring the results of the examination back to the surgeon who requested an examination so that a follow-up plan for removing the lump can be carried out. It is better not to delay the examination and treatment because as mentioned above, the more you leave the tumor, the more likely it is to become malignant.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
