Soon: Lymph node biopsies often require additional testing compared to other biopsies. In addition to looking at the cells under the microscope, the cells often need to be analyzed using special techniques. Then these pieces of information are integrated together making the process a little longer than other biopsies. By a week though, the results should be very soon. Your doc may receive them first.
