Ct shows bilat hilar, all mediastl & virchows node enlarged @ least 3 mos dr says not sarcoid. Past endo cancer 1a, can biopsy of virchows tell issue?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Biopsy of the enlarged virchow's node would in all probability either rule in or out a cancerous cause for the enlargement.
Good luck!

In brief: Biopsy

You need to have a pet scan if your insurance will cover for it.
If not, you should have those lymph nodes biopsied to tell you definitively what they are.
