Can you help with my lymph node results on the pathology report?!

node biopsy results HELP,, please

hi, I had an FNA

Microscopic Description:

Aspirations from the first two passes yielded very little material. All three passes show a mildly heterogeneous population of lymphocytes. There are predominantly small mature lymphocytes with a few scattered larger cells including a rare tingible body macrophage. No granulomas or epithelial cells are seen.

results; Low cellular yield showing mildly-heterogeneous lymphoid population.

Comment: Clinical follow-up of the lymph nodes is recommended, and excisional biopsy may be necessary for definitive diagonsis if the lymph node does not resolve.
