No, but for a diferent, non-lung cancer, my surgeon took out 27 lymph nodes that he thought suspicious. 2 of them nearest my tumor were found by the pathologist to be malignant, but the rest were not. Initally the pathologist thought they all  looked suspicious, too, but under the microscope they were clearly not. So I think it's not unusual for a surgeon to think a node looks suspicous, but it isn't malignant.
