Lesion: A lesion means an abnormality. However, it is a very nonspecific term, and could signify anything along the spectrum of being completely nothing to worry about, to something very serious. Further imaging studies may be needed to figure out what it might be. Are there more details in the report? If so, post them. If not, call your doctor and ask him/her what the finding means.
