This is Dr. Diego, experienced in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary and Critical Care.

I understand your concerns. An hyper-metabolic nodule in a person exposed to tobacco smoke is concerning for malignancy. A biopsy or complete resection of the nodule is usually done as part of the diagnosis/treatment.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

I requested a refund. I didn't understand that the fee would be what it was. The reply was okay, but no new answer.
