Biopsy Question

I was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer in my duodenum which also looks to have spread to lymph node near the pancreas. The dr at a "questionable" hospital did the biopsy on thr tumor which came back as inconclusive. I thought this was odd as my dr who originally diagnosed me told me the pet scan showed it very clearly. Fast forward to now and I've just had another biopsy done now in the lymph node near pancreas as oncologist at peter mac thinks they missed the first time. Has anyone else had biopsy experiences like this ? I'm worried they will just leave it not do anything and then it will spread.
