  • Could be nothing. If it was cancer, they would know and they would have you in for a biopsy ASAP.

  • The two tests will tell the doctor whether they are granulomas or tumours. A granuloma, which is common, is a spot caused by inflammation or scarring from past infection, and it will not grow or change in between scans. A tumour will. If there is a change noted between the two scans , you will likely have a biopsy to tell whether it is malignant or benign.
