Peptic Ulcer - Swollen Lymph Nodes

Hi - is it possible to for a peptic or duodenal ulcer to cause swollen lymph nodes in the back ? I don't have swollen lymph nodes anywhere else and am a healthy 50-year old. My CBC just came back totally normal.

Thanks for any help !

The enlarged lymph nodes were discovered in an abdominal  CT scan.  They are not painful and I don't know if they're fixed or hard.  I was told that they were about 1.5" when they should be only 0.5".

It is really not usual that gastric or duodenal ulcer would result in swollen nodes.

- gastric cancer or limphoma or other abdominal cancer
- leukemia
- autoimune gastritis or pancreatitis
- other (?)

Do you have ulcus? Are you loosing weight, have nausea? Do you fel like meat smells?
