A friend's cat scan shows "nodues"in his right lung upper lobe and the doctors aren't sssure if it is or is'nt cancer. A pulmonologist suggested a bronscopy with a tissue biopsy of the area. Could the biopsy activate the cancer (if it is) or do any worse damage? The oncologist said it might be an infection. Is there a definitive test before it gets any worse? Thank you for help/suggestions.
