Hilar and Medistinal Adenopahty

Please help me understand my CT scan results as I can not get in to see the Pulmonary Specialist for 2 weeks:

Findings: Images through the lungs demonstrate no suspicious pulmonary nodules. There are small prevascular and pretraceal nodes. Bilateral hilar nodes are seen measuring 10 and 17 mm. Subcarinal nodes are seen as well measuring 2.9 centimeters. No pleural or pericardial effusion. images of the upper portion of the abdomen demonstrate no evidence of splenomegaly. Adrenal glands appear normal. Patient status post cholecystectomy.

Impression: There are hilar and mediastinal adenopathy noted as described above.The differential diagnosis includes both reative, inflammatory and malignant etiologies. Clinical correlation is suggested. Followup examination may be indicated. I see no cardiac enlargement. No pleural or pericardial effusion noted.

Help Please - Thank you
Jayla
