Hi there,
The upper range of average size of lymph nodes in portacaval space is 10 mm. Lymph nodes are an important part of our immune system. They help fight any foreign materials in our body and fighting certain infections and cancers. Perihepatic lymph nodes are usually enlarged in patients with chronic hepatitis C infection, hepatitis and hepatocellular carcinoma. You should clarify your doubts with your doctor and discuss your test results. Any test result should be correlated clinically. Do keep me posted.
Best of luck and take care!
