In my Lumbar MRI, it reported "Incidentally noted tiny enlarged retroperitoneal lymph nodes; all measuring under 5 mm short axis diameter"?

In brief: Just as it says-

-like"O by the way " we noticed these nodes.
Said that way as it was not the reason the MRI was done. It does not imply that U should not worry. They may B related 2 a prior infection or could B sentinel nodes from a tumor. They need 2 B evaluated & find the cause 4 their presence!
