Probable biopsy: A spiculated mass is often worrisome for cancer. However this also could be from a prior lung infection. Your doctors may consider a needle biopsy of the mass or a pet/ct scan. It would be helpful to compare this finding with any old chest xrays or ct scans to see if this is a new mass.
