In brief: Biopsy

The next step is to have a biopsy done if lymphoma is considered likely.

In brief: Nodes and lymphoma

Well, as with any cancer diagnosis you must have a tissue diagnosis.
This means one of the lymph nodes needs to be removed and looked at by a pathologist. Only than can you move to the next step.
