Depends on PRESENTAT: It depends on your presentation and present symptoms and any other findngs on physical examination
mesenteric lymphadenitis is most commonly caused by infection which may be viral, bacterial or parasitic
other causes are lumphoma, other cancers.I will advice you consult your treating doctor as you may need more tests and may be followup to establish a diagnosis before a referral is made to specialis.
