8mm nodule that is spiculated

I was told they were concerned that it was cancer because it was spiculated. Doc said sending me for pet scan and then possible biopsy. 2 hours later doc calls and says they are putting me on antibiotics, then rescan in 2 months. I'm confused. I don't have insurance. That wouldn't have influenced their decision would it have? Should I worry? Should I demand pet scan? If cancer, won't it get bigger in 2 months?

Hello,

A lot of things that show up in lungs are actually lung infections.  Not that they're good for you, but they're not cancer.  Best to rule out that first.

Hi, how did this turn out?  They just found a 9mm spiculated nodule in lung, pet scan was clear no uptake and now I see the pulmonologist Feb. 13.  Terrified

from the original poster as they posted once and never came back. This often happens. I did reply to you in your other post but thought I would had this to link for you as well.

Biopsy is the only answer here.
