    need help understand my report

    I got results back from a CT scan and it read the following

    " possible low-grade bronchogenic neoplasm"

    what does that mean? any explanation will be helpful

    It means there is an area of somewhat different than normal cells in your lung. "Possible" is the operative word...meaning not obvious but something is wonky. Further testing would be required.
    I would assume a PET scan would be in order to see if it's an active site.
