Hi, Welcome to HCM. I am Dr. Das.
first of all you did not tell us why you went to doctor. Because in many condition mesenteric lymph nodes are identifiable including cancer but not only in cancer. So my advice is dont get tensed. if you have any symptoms related with cancer it must raised suspicion for your doctor.
