OK further testing is back from the University regarding enlarged Lymph Node ............appears to be good news !!! Bug I emailed you a copy of the newest report.
Now vet wonders why reactive ?
Maybe joint pain or something ?
She plans to take a close looks at the hips etc later once we are though the tough times of this pandemic.......but meanwhile suggest joint supplement ..... she suggests a product called........Phycox.............thinking that might make this lymph node less reactive......if joints are the problem.
Anyway was a great relief to know no cancer cells identified in this specimen!!!!

T Cell Receptor Polyclonal
Site: Lymph node
The PARR assay did not reveal clonal rearrangements of immunoglobulin or T
cell receptor genes. This finding indicates lack of evidence for neoplastic
lymphocytes in this sample. We estimate that we detect clonal rearrangements
of immunoglobulin or T cell receptor genes in 85% of cytologically or
histologically confirmed lymphoid malignancies in dogs, when the assay is
performed on tissue with the cytologically or histologically suspicious
cells. Therefore the results should reduce your suspicion for
lymphoma/leukemia, but not rule out these diseases.
Referral test performed at the Clinical Immunopathology Laboratory at
Colorado State University.
