Waiting to have my SLN biopsy

Hello, I was recently diagnosed with 2.2mm melanoma on my cheek. With the excision biopsy they were able to get clear vertical margins but not clear horizontal margins. I am scheduled for a wide excision and SLN biopsy in 4 weeks. My question is, if my cancer has spread to my lymph nodes (they said it's about a 10% chance) is it risky to wait 4 weeks to find this out?
