How do lifestyle factors and exposure to environmental substances affect our cancer risk?

Hello and thank you for any response anyone can give me. I am a 57 yo woman and just had an MRI of my neck and cervical spine. Many different things showed up but the one thing that grabbed my attention and won't let go was something totally unrelated to what we were looking for. I see my neurologist next week to discuss the findings but I sure wish someone could translate this for me.
It states that there were "Prominent Nasopharyngeal soft tissue" as well as "multiple lymph nodes scattered throughout the neck".....I am uasually good at reseaching things on the computer but when I type in 'nasopharygeal soft tissue" the "only" thing that comes up is cancer! No other option on any site, any where, that I have looked gives any other option. I am wondering if this is a conclusive cancer diagnosis? Can anyone offer me any info or any other options of maybe something I have not seen while looking for this?

Did you or your loved one seek a second opinion before starting cancer treatment?
No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
