Hello,

Thanks for your consult at DoctorSpring.com.

As the CT pelvis and the blood work was normal, I would go in favour of the nodes being non cancerous.

There could be various other conditions for the lymph node enlargement - infection, idiopathic ( no reason ), auto immune conditions.

A biopsy would be confirmatory of course, but just isolated lymph node enlargement in absence of symptoms, with negative investigative work up , is , in all probability, non cancerous.

All the best.
Please feel free to discuss further.
