Hi, Scraturi,
Thanks for query.
Report indicates that there is enlarged lymph nodes showing infective changes.
Usually this may be due to some infection in surrounding area like throat, teeth, ears, neck.
Nothing to worry, treatment of infection at the sites I described will cure lymphadenitis.
Ok and bye.
