From your post I gather that you had both a biopsy and also had the tumor removed .... if this is correct then specimens are often sent to different Pathology Labs for more intensive studies. Perhaps the biopsy sampled a section of the tumor that may not have shown cancerous cells. You will know for certain after the results come from the Path. Lab where the tumor was sent.  Regards ....
