Drs found a left para aortic lymph node enlarged to 3cm .....all other test came back ok no symptoms....no cancer... Is it ok to leave it alone?

Evaluation

Cancer
First question is why was initial scan that found lymph node performed? A complete evaluation is critical. Isolated para-aortic and AP window nodes (levels 6 & 5) can be benign inflammatory, from lung cancer, from other cancer, or etc... complete health maintenance including history, physical and appropriate risk associated screening critical : mammography, +/- colonoscopy, head neck eval, etc...

I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer stage 3c in 2008. No recurrence other than a para-aortic lymph node....PET showed SUV of 19.8. what doc do i need?

Gyn oncology

Ovarian_cancer
You should see a gyn onc first. Surgery may be appropriate. There may also be a role for chemo which many gyn oncs give their own chemo. A possible alternative to surgery if you choose not to do it may be a newer type of radiation called SBRT.

What is the significance of having multiple para aortic enlarged lymph node?

Need more info

Aorta
That finding of para-aortic lymph nodes can have a wide ranging list of possibilities depending on the person's medical history. The findings could range from benign inflamed lymph nodes, benign Castleman's Disease, lymphoma, or cancers. There are too many possibilities and I do not have enough information to be able to tell here. Would need to follow up with your doctor.

What could cause lymphadenopathy for over a year? I've already had a needle biopsy which only showed that my lymph nodes are reactive.

In many cases,

Biopsy
a needle biopsy is not adequate for a diagnosis. There are a fair number of infections as well as other things that can do this.

Thoracic Surgeon

Go see your thoracic surgeon and pneumologist to review your films and follow up.May need to obtain new films as needed. The main concern of mediastinal adenopathy is what is causing it. Both bening and malignant diseases can cause mediastinal adenopathy.
