I think they can, Courtney, but they usually don't unless they have reason to suspect a distant invasion. I am in the City of Hope tomorrow for my post-op pathology resilts, I will ask if he did biopsy any additional lymphs. My surgeon told me that the local lymphs were clean. Because he said that a "suspicious" tissue was left behind, I'll ask about additional lymphs and whether they were tested.
