    My lymph node biopsy was part of my mastectomy surgery. They need to know the status of the lymph nodes prior to chemo. as they may need to change their medication plans depending on the result. Have you had any breast surgery yet?

    No they want me to get a lymph node biopsy first, (Dr said they are suspect) then chemo (make tumor small) then surgery (hoping for a lumpectomy) with reconstruction , finally radiation

      Mine looked OK on my MRI but my Surgeon elected to take out a handful (8) when doing my mastectomy. All 8 were negative, thank God.
