If a Lymph node is removed and found to be cancerous..Cell

This answer was rated:

If a Lymph node is removed and found to be cancerous when the original diagnosis is Squamous Cell Penile Cancer, does that mean the patient has a Lymphoma?


The lymphoma cancer cells are quite different than the lymphatic metastasis from the penile squamous cell carcinoma. So both of them are quite distinct entity and cannot be confused. Any inguinal lymph node metastasis from penile squamous cell cancer, thus does not mean Lymphoma.

Hope this helps.
