Ok, so my doctor sent for a CBC and an ultrasound of the node. They didn't check for others in the area, but just the large one I knew about. I got the report today for the ultrasoound and I'm a little confused about what it means.

"A hypoechoic reniform structure with mild hypervascularity and a
fatty hilum measures 1.3 x 0.6 x 1.1 cm, consistent with a prominent
lymph node."

I think reniform means kidney shaped, and that's normal right? He said prominent lymph node so I'm guessing the radiologist doesn't seem too concerned about it, but I'm not sure. I'm just not sure I understand what the rest of it means and I don't want to be shrugged off by my doctor if the radiologist says it's normal.
