A sentinel node localisation surgery is where the lymph node is removed and then analysed to find out if it has been affected by cancer cells.
The sentinel lymph node is the first few lymph nodes to which the cancer can spread. This procedure is carried out to localise these nodes. During surgery the lymph node is removed and then analysed to find out if it has been affected by cancer cells.
This procedure can help the surgeon determine which lymph nodes to remove, without the risk of complications associated with surgically removing all potentially cancerous nodes.
The cost of Sentinel Lymph Node Localisation procedure is covered by most medical insurance policies, but please check with your insurer first. If you are paying for your own scan, please ask for the cost of the procedure to be explained when you book the appointment.
