Sentinel node biopsy is a surgery used to establish whether cancer has spread out beyond a primary tumor into your lymphatic system. The sentinel nodes are the first few lymph nodes into which a tumor drains pipes. Sentinel node biopsy entails infusing a tracer material that helps the doctor situate the sentinel nodes throughout surgical treatment. If a sentinel lymph node biopsy discloses cancer, your medical professional might suggest getting rid of more lymph nodes. Sentinel node biopsy is advised for people with certain types of cancer to figure out whether the cancer cells have spread out into the lymphatic system.
