I recently had a CT ordered by my oncologist the findings were
At the right lung apex there is a solid 8 x 6 mm nodule best seen on image 18 prior studies only showed a subtle groundglass density in this region measuring 5 mm in diameter. There is mild diffuse centilobular emphysematous changes. There is minimal scarring and nodularity at the periphery of the left lung base on image 92. Stability is consistent with benign etiology. The central airways are clear. There is mild ectasia of the ascending aorta measuring up to 3.6 cm in diameter, stable in appearance. In the left lower lobe abutting the fissure on image 61 there is a 0.5 x 0.4 cm nodule whice does not appear significantly changed since 2009. There is mild atherosclerotic changes of the left coronary artery. no pericardial or pleural effusion.
No mediastinal or hilar adenopathy thyroid unremarkable.
8 x 6 mm nodule at right lung appex
Given presence of a subtle groundglass densities in this region on prior studies close follow up should be performed.
This represents test value SIGNIFICANT.

My oncologist told me my CT was normal. My GP told me it was not and was given this report. So who do I listen to?
