No Hyperpara: The normal PTH level indicates that you do not have hyperparathyroidism. Calcium also needs to be corrected for your albumin. Assuming that it is normal ; given that you have swollen lymphnodes, other causes of hypercalcemia are more concerning such as sarcoidosis or lymphoma. Checking can help as1, 25 vit d should be high, (25) oh vit d normal to low. You should talk to your doctor about that.
