Gyno performed uterine biopsy but states not enough tissue gotten 4 diagnosis but biopsy results read "Normal ' Please help understand ?
It is normal : We may think at the Time we are doing the biopsy that we didn't obtain enough tissue, however if the pathology report says it's normal then they were able to obtain enough tissue to get a good specimen.

Level 3 cervical lymphnode had abnormal morphology on ct, getting an excision biopsy soon. What do abnormal morphology mean? Doc suspects lymphoma
Shape/Size Mostly: CT shows nodal shape, size and if it is has fat (a good thing). Most nodes are oval or kidney shaped. If they are round and big, they may be involved in something like lymphoma. Sometimes infection can do this too, so it is not a slam dunk. I'm afraid you'll just have to wait it out for the path report as CT is non specific. MR with fancy contrast is better but still not as good as Bx. ...Read more
