I had a CT of abdomen/Pelvis to try to find out why I've been having pain and nausia. A 1.3cm para aortic lymph node was seem on the left, along with 'several scattered small lymph nodes in the retro peritoneal area' and a 3.3cm cyst with in my right ovary. I know the cyst would certainly explain my symptoms, but the fact that I have at least one enlarged lymph node sort of worries me. Do you think that is cause for concern? The CT was ordered by a GI doc, but I'm seeing a OB/GYN very soon. I'm only 26, and a mother of 1 beautiful boy.
You should undergo further examination for determining the nature of the ovarian cyst and the cause foe swollen paraaortic lymph node.
The worst scenario could be a genital malignancy, spreading to the paraaortic lymph nodes.
The right answer can be given by you gynecologist!
