Re: what is a non-calcified mass?
The size matters, I don't understand why she wouldn't send you for a follow-up, I think that you should sign up for a CAT scan....it will be covered by insurance because there is a suspcious lesion. Also, you should find out if this mass was showing up on past XRAys..and if it has changed. Have you had past x-rays? It is probably nothing..and I don't know how a "nurse" knows if it is classified or non-classified...you didn't talk to a Dr.? Many people have nodules...it seems like it is a personal choice on how far you investigate them....you can wait until the next X ray (which I hope they are going to watch this and see if it changes)..or you can follow-up on this one. I have 3 nodules...I only had 1 3 years ago...I just had an MRI and they are not concerned about them. But, I just read a post where a ladys Dr. told her not to be concerned...and she went further and had surgery and hers turned out to be malignant cancer. So, its our choice on how far we go.
