Tumor On lung

I am hoping someone can help me. My mom had a stroke about 2 weeks ago. She went through a a lot of test while in the hospital. They found a spot on her lung through either a lung xray or a ct scan. I am not sure which one. Then they did a throat scope to see what the spot was. It turns out that it is a tumor. The person that did the scope said it looks benign to him but she needs to come back and get a biopsy of it to make sure. Im not 100% sure where it is but I do know its by her windpipe. She has never smoked but her parents did when she was a child. What are the chances of it being benign? The tumor is about the size of a pencil eraser. Any information would help. Thanks!
