I’m due an ultrasound on multiple painless swollen lymph nodes, will the scan show if the lymph nodes have cancer cells in them?

In brief: Unlikely

An ultrasound does not have the resolution to see cancer cells.
The image may or may not suggest cancer, but definitive diagnosis requires removal of the node and examination by a pathologist.
