my husband had a ct scan and it reveiled lymph nodes (to many to count) on his stomach,liver and panceras.we are scheduled to see a oncologist?? sorry about the spelling but im very concerned. they really didnt say much to us other than wait for the phone call from oncology..which could be weeks for all we know. he is battling hep c on interfron & pegasist. could this be cancer? should i really be worried? i know w/o his records it is hard to say but lymph nodes on all 3 areas doesnt sound good right? please respond i would appreacite it. thank you.
I just got my results back today from a CT Scan and I too have some lymph nodes on or near my pancreas. I have been told not to worry about them as they aren't big, what does that mean. If a doctor is telling me I have lymph nodes on or near my pancreas I naturally came home and read up on a few other issues, I don't think you should worry until you see the oncologist, it doesn't always mean cancer, it could mean he is the best in his field at removing the lymph nodes and yes sending them away for those tests they do. I am not a doctor but I do suffer from acute pancreatic disorder and know what a pain it is to be left in the dark with things
my husband had CT SCAN and it reveiled enlaged heterogeneously enhacing peripancreatic and peaortic lymph nodes are noted, larges measuring approx 4.8 * 3.0 cm in size.Is this a cancer? I worried about this. Please respome as soon as.
Lymph nodes are all over your body normally. They worry if lymph nodes are chronically inflamed (enlarged) as this is a sign they are fighting a foreign invader (virus, bacteria etc.). Sometimes enlarged lymph nodes can be related to Lymphoma, but not always. Google whatever you can but don't jump to any conclusions without a health care practitioner's advice on your exact situation. Although it is natural to jump to worst case scenarios, it's not necessary! Take Care.
