Inflamed lymph nodes: There are lymph glands in the abdomen, usually within the membranous tissue that is attached to the intestine called mesentery. If these nodes become inflamed, it is called mesenteric lymphadenitis. One common place is around the appendix which could mimic signs and symptoms of appendicitis.
