in late 2004 my father (age 64, vegan, teatotler, non smoker) was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma of tongue and since he is a heart patient too he was given brachytheraphy treatment in the affected area which then got cured. After about 6 months in early June 2005 a node in the neck was affected in the same side as that of the primary site for which he underwent radiation treatment to burn all the nodes in the neck. this went on for 25 days. After whcih he became ok.

A few days back he again noticed a lump in his throat (again on the same side as the primary site) for whcih a biopsy was conducted. I am stating here the result of the biopsy which seems inconclusive. Can some one enlighten me on that?? Does it mean the node has been affected or not? Further he has been asked to take another biopsy of the enlarged neck node. The node size as per the Ultrasound is 1.2cm by 1.3cm at a depth if 1 cm.
