Customer Question

I had a CT scan without contrast to look for possibility of kidney stones....reading results all look good, but it does mention I have a few sub centimeter lymph nodes in small bowel. I see on line that these are common and I have recently had blood work as well as an ultrasound which showed no mass........should I worry?
