I have multiple enlarged nodes in my neck/ears and had a biopsy done on one node because it was the easiest one to remove. Results came back benign. Can I rest assured that everything is fine? If one node is fine should the rest of them be benign too?
Though cancer could involve a single or just a few nodes; if one ‘enlarged’ lymphnode is fine, others are likely to be so. If the lymphnode enlargement was cancerous it is likely to have involves all ‘enlarged lymphnodes’. I would suggest waiting for some time to note if the nodes come down. If there is no appreciable reduction in size, one may consider FNAC/ biopsy of a few other accessible lymphnodes as well. I would suggest discussing the situation and the suggested management plan in detail with your treating doctor.
Hope this is helpful.
