Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Based on your ultrasound results, it is known that there is a problem or disease in lymph glands (KGB). KGB is a system of fluid flow from the body that comes from blood plasma. Functioning in filtering bacteria, viruses, parasites, cancer cells and other germs that enter the body's blood circulation. KGB will produce the body's immune system against existing diseases. If KGB works excessively in producing the immune system, it will cause the KGB to become swollen. This is what is called lymphadenopathy.
Meanwhile, multiple indicates that the KGB has more than one swelling.
After an ultrasound examination, and the results obtained as you mentioned, the doctor will then plan a fine needle biopsy. Namely by taking a sample on the swollen KGB by using a fine needle, for examination of anatomic pathology. From anatomic pathology examination will be known to cause swelling of the KGB, whether bacterial infection is specific or non-specific or benign or malignant.
From the examination the doctor will determine the best treatment options to be performed.
However, however the ultrasound examination and biopsy are only supporting. So that each result must be reconciled with the clinical data that the doctor has.
Control again according to the schedule that the doctor has set. Discuss each doctor's advice with the family.
Thus hopefully useful.
