What is sinus histiocytosis?

I just had a masectomy and removal of axilliary lymph nodes. Thankfully, no residual tumour in the breast tissue.

All the lymph nodes show evidence of sinus histiocytosis. My surgeon says no cancer in the lymph nodes, but can anyone please help to explain what is sinus histiocytosis?

I would get a copy of the pathology report. I would have an oncology doctor explain them to you clearly. VERY clearly. Just reading on the internet will only get you worried so go to an ONCOLOGIST and have them explain it to you. Really.

Best wishes.
