freaking out about abnormal ct scan results

Hey guys, I'm Nate, 30, from Michigan. Here's my story.

Diagnosed with Testicle cancer, radical orch, 3 weeks ago, pathology showed classical seminona, t3 tumor with sperm cord involvement. Tumor markers were fairly normal post op. Labeled stage 1b prior to cat scan

just got my ct scan results which read

" there are multiple prominent appearing mesenteric lymph nodes which are non specific. This would be an unusual distribution for metastic testicular cancer. No restro or pelvic lymph"

Oncologist was confused because testicle cancer doesn't spread here, so what is it?

He is referring me back to the urologist, and waiting 2 weeks to decide treatment.

Tumor markers weren't crazy post op or prior however my afp has increased from 7.4 to 9 since last check up. And my liver blood test are high.

I'm just a bit confused about what this could be?

thank you all.

its weird that your AFP is high (mine was 5000, so dont worry) as you have seminona. maybe your liver is causing this, dont you drink too much maybe?

i think they will consider to give you one round of bep and see what happens. or do a biopsy. 

it does not sound scaring, thats for sure.

as to the lymph nodes - do you have previous ct's? could it be just an infection?
