  • More information is needed to help you. How was this mass discovered? Most likely it was via some sort of cross-sectional imaging modality (CT vs. MRI).

    Statistically, this mass is benign unless you have a prior cancer diagnosis. Regardless, if the imaging study that uncovered the mass in the first place was unable to make a definitive diagnosis, it should be worked up with further imaging (special CT or MRI protocols to get additional images). This will let the radiologist make the correct diagnosis or point you and your primary care doctor in the right direction fur further evaluation (blood work, etc.).

    I hope that the helps.
