Does anyone know what and where pericardial lymph nodes are? I would still like to know since I have not talked to the dr yet, what calcified means because I have a few spots on the report that say that and I hope it is not bad news!! Hope your all doing ok. hugs

It is near the heart area. I have a para aortic lymph node. These nodes receive drainage from the lower gastrointestinal track and pelvic organs.

Calcified means hardened, stony, inflexible.
