Lymph node: enlargement in the body part that connects the intestines to the major blood vessels. Main context is when it causes pain that mimics acute appendicitis, confounding the diagnosis. It is usually reactive to infection or inflammation, but if it is multiple and enlarged, it could be sign of lymphoma or Hodgkin's disease in rare instances. Ask your doctor for further explanation.
