Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The report does not directly say / nor is it specific
You have not stated your age, gender, personal habits, family history or co-morbidities

You should go for BIOPSY - that is the gold standard for diagnosis / all else guess work..
CT may give better delineation...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

Hi and welcome to HCM.
This is pretty nonspecific finding,but from my experience it doesnt sounds to me like cancer. These are probably reactively swollen lymph nodes due to respiratory or any other infection. If you want to be sure you should do recommended test and needle biopsy, but I dont think this is malignant.
Wish you good health, sir.
