Mediastinoscopy is a procedure that allows the physician to view the lymph nodes in the center of your chest through a small metal tube (mediastinoscope). A small tube is passed through a small incision at the base of your neck or to the side of your breast plate. This procedure also enables the physician to collect samples of your lymph node tissue.
