Welcome to health care magic. Considering thd young age and the presentation with anemia and mutiple abdominal lymph nodes, one should evaluate him quickly without wasting time and i would have seng such a patient for a CT scan of abdomen and then lymph node biopsy for definitive diagnosis. We need to rule out significant conditions like lymphoma, tuberculosis, sarcoidosis, etc. And the treatment for each is completely different and most conditions among those mentioned above are rapidly progressive unless treated urgently. Hence, i would suggest you to consult a physician soon.
Happy to help you.
