Cancer spreads from one area of the body to another by going through the lymph nodes. When your doctor is determining what stage of cancer you have, they may need to examine tissue from your lymph node to look for cancer cells using a biopsy. You may also need a lymph node biopsy if your lymph nodes are enlarged.
Sylvester’s interventional radiologists can get tissue from a lymph node through a minimally invasive lymph node biopsy to help diagnose cancer.
