    Can anyone translate these CT scan results?

    I have a follow up with my doctor in a week, but I'm trying to understand these results before then. Due to some abnormal CBCs, and a few other factors, she is testing me for CLL and Hodgkin lymphoma. I've had a swollen lymph node in my neck for about a year, so I got the scan done, but I do not understand the medical terminology, and my brain is hurting from all the googling and trying to piece stuff together. If anyone could give me any insight on what this means, It would be greatly appreciated
