The lymph nodes are small swellings of lymphatic system and contains lymph. The color of a normal healthy lymph node is whitish/yellow. The lymph nodes swell due to infection or cancer. You have gone for the biopsy of lymph node because doctor wanted to differentiate a cancerous and non cancerous lymph node. Slightly dark color might be due to abnormal growth, but wait for the biopsy report.

My lymph node biopsy today revealed dark colored lymph nodes in one side of the groin.  Anyone know what the dark color means?
