What does FDG avid axilary LN; likely representing nodal deposit, for histopathological correlation mean?

My husband is going into surgery on Sunday - does this mean they will remove all his lympth nodes?

Someone at the hospital should have explained this. They cannot ethically accept your husband's consent to his treatment until the procedure has been explained and the pros and cons discussed.

Good luck for Sunday!
