    Not neccessarily. More

    Not neccessarily. More imaging studies and perhaps a biopsy need to be done to determine that. If serial ct scans show no change in size, then its less likely to be cancer. They found one about that size on my dad 6 years ago they did imaging tests on it every 3 months, and it never changed. They said it was likely scaring from an old infection. So nothing was done, and he has never had trouble out of it.
