Hello and hope you are doing well.

Lymph node enlargement at the porta could be due infections or tumors of the liver. It could also be due to tumors of the upper GI tract. Sometimes an endoscopy may be needed to make a diagnosis. But for now, follow up with your doctor to monitor the changes in the size of the node.  

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
