Ask your doctor: It is impossible to get a reliable opinion on what a finding on a CT scan means from physicians who have not seen the scan. Speculation just leads to undue worry. Talk to your doctor! They have seen the scan... ask them the questions you have, openly, until you understand what they are thinking about the CT finding. Take care.
