I personally haven’t, but I know many patients are concerned about this. Whether the enlarged node turns out to be something serious or benign is not clear. A lot depends on where the node is, whether you have other symptoms (like fevers, chills, weight loss, fatigue), or whether the CT scan was done for some other reason and this enlarged node was found incidentally. I would suggest you try to relax. Most likely, it is benign. Good luck.

I have, and so far it is benign and nothing to be concerned about. I get another scan every year or so to watch for any changes. Try not to get too worried while you wait for results. I know it’s easier said than done. I hope you get good results. Keep us posted.
