Get the Biopsy!: The nodule is demonstrating suspicious findings which warrant the biopsy. Biopsy results will answer the question. No way to be sure until then. Most results turn out benign but whatever the result it is best to diagnose tumors as early as possible for the best prognosis. Good luck.
