Yes . . .: Wow, smoking since 11yo? Bottom line, if screening CT scan finds something abnormal, you need to chat w/ordering physician to discuss your options regarding next step eg how to figure out what's going on. Sometimes the radiologist will suggest repeating a scan in a specific period of time if it's small & indeterminate. But this again is something best discussed w/ordering physician. Best wishes!
