A surgical procedure in which the lymph nodes are removed and a sample of tissue is checked
under a microscope for signs of cancer. For a regional lymph node dissection, some of the lymph
nodes in the tumor area are removed; for a radical lymph node dissection, most or all of the
lymph nodes in the tumor area are removed. Also called lymphadenectomy.
