Post Bowel Walls are thickened

Has anyone been diagnosed with bowel wall thickening? Does anyone know what this means? I went to a hemotologist/oncologist for some testing of my lymph nodes and during the pelvic cat scan he noticed that my bowel walls were thickened. I have not went back to see the dr. after this - does anyone have any advice for me?

I don't know all of the possible causes of bowel wall thickening but have had that report on a CT scan I had and it was due to Crohn's disease - other symptoms include diarrhea, weight loss, pain, fever.
Good luck with a diagnosis.
