What happens in a ultrasound guided lymph node fnab?Does it mean a high likelihood of the actual biopsy?Any bandages or scars after? What about rugby?

In brief: Needle aspiration

Fnab usually involves aspirating some cells through a thin needle.
You may need a bandage, but as there is no incision, you should not have a scar. It is not the fnab that may interfere with rugby but the reason why you are having the procedure. Need for biopsy or other procedure would be determined based on the results of fnab.
