IMPRESSION: 1CM in maximum diameter right upper lobe nodule

This answer was rated:

IMPRESSION: 1CM in maximum diameter right upper lobe nodule is slightly irregular margins demonstrates equivocal FDGaccumulation. This is however a new lesion not present in 2017 and there is an ipsilateral hypermetabolic right hilar lymph node. Because of this, the right upper lobe nodule is still felt to be at least moderate suspicion. Correlation with a CT-guided biopsy of the right upper lobe nodule would be recommended for further evaluation. If patient is reluctant to have biopsy, short term progress chest CT in 3 months could be considered alternatively. No other significant abnormality.
Thank you for requesting me here.

I am happy to hear that the surgeon also wanted to just follow up after 3 months like what I have suggested.But because of the equivocal response in the pet scan he is being appropriately cautious in giving you an option of CT guided biopsy please.It is as simple as that.But if it were me I would prefer to wait because a CT guided biopsy is an invasion procedure.I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you, and that I have earned my 5 star rating today!
