Complicated: Your doctor should follow up on this scan with you. I can't tell you definitively what those lymph nodes mean -- i'd need to know why you got the scan in the first place, what your flank plain was all about, what your other symptoms are and what your blood tests show. Please see your doctor soon to discuss this. ...Read more

Multiple mesenteric lymph nodes enlarged, does it mean kochs abdomen?

May or may not be!: Unless we know the size of the enlarged nodes, it is difficult to know what these nodes mean. You need to go see a specialist who can do further checking especially if you have any abdominal symptoms like pain, poor appetite, weight loss or fever. If you are well, you can wait and repeat the imaging study that showed these nodes in the first instance. A 2-3 month interval might show if they change. ...Read more
