An MRI would be the best medical imaging for following reasons;

1) It does not have radiation.

2) It depict the diseases of the soft tissues including lymph nodes better than the CT scan.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
