If there are no nodules larger than 4mm and are not in a high risk group (heavy smoker) there is a less than 1% risk of malignancy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

See the oncologist and ask for specifics about this finding. Was the pet scan positive in the same area? If so, that raises the concern, but it still could be reactive. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
