Brief Answer: Please find detailed answer below Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX, Thanks for writing in to us. I have read through your query in detail. The MRI report finding means there are some lymphnodes in the upper abdomen around the diaphragm and possibly at the level of the kidneys. The size of the lymphnode is mentioned as prominent. This suggests nodes that are not too big but at the same time noticeable. The above report must be understood in the background of the condition affecting the patient. If there is no obvious past history of disease, patient can be screened at a cancer detection clinic. Hope your query is answered. Do write back if you have any doubts. Regards, Dr.Vivek
