Question: CT shows nodes in the retroperitoneum and mesentery


 luvumason - Thu May 24, 2007 6:53 pm

Hi, I am a 21 yr old female and I recieved some cat scan results that said I had nodes identified in the retroperitoneum and mesentery of uncertain significance. What does this mean?

User avatar Why did you get the CT scan initially? This will help in answering the significance of the nodes.

Thanks.
