Your own vet may have done the cytology in his prsactice. By taking a fine needle sample vets can make a smear and examine it under the microscope and differentiate between an abscess, allergic reaction and cancer for instance. Sometimes these samples are sent away to laboratories who do the microscopic exams and report back to the vet. There are a number of labs in the country who can do this. Your vet will be able to tell you which tests were done and by whom.
