Unlikely: Though I almost never say "absolutely not"! The description you gave that I just read, would not concern me if It were my own study. In medicine and Radiology, we often come across many things we can't name specifically, but do not appear worrisome. If it eases your mind, get another test in 6 months and see if there is a change.
