Radiologist 's  Response
Hi, welcome to HCM
subcentimetric lymph nodes means there is some infection in lung fields, but it is not significant. For any lymphnode to be significant it should be more than 1 cm.
It will be more helpful , if you can upload your complete report. Otherwise you should contact your radiologist , he/she will explain you in details.
Thanking you.
