I had what was thought to be a UTI or a kidney stone, high ketones in urine sample a few weeks back was given 10 days of levaquin, was ordered a CT scan last friday and got the results, normal kidney, normal lung bases, normal spleen, no appendicitis, but had discovered a lymph node in my abdomen that measured 13x14mm, the radiologist suggested a follow up in 3-6 months, that seems a bit long for me. I have obviously now searched the internet and most of the things that come up are cancer related. Do other things cause a lymph node to be enlarged like this? I am in an absolute panic state right now. Please help.
