Sampling error: Fine needle aspirate of lymph nodes are not ideal for ruling out abnormal findings. Especially, with lymphomas there may be areas within the ln that are not involved and sampling of these areas may be misleading. Excisional biopsy is the gold standard, as it allows for assessment of individual cells and architecture of lymph node and adequate tissue for specialty workup. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hemorrhage/bleeding is not unusual; it may even have been caused by the insertion of the needle. Fixation artifact simply means there is disruption of the tissue due to fixation/preparing the material for the microscope. Probably needs repeating...discuss with Doc. Good wishes:) ...Read more
