My mom had a spot on her lung which showed up in pre-op testing (before a hysterectomy). After repeat imaging, months apart . . . they never did figure out what it was. That was 25 years ago and we celebrated her 80th birthday today. She's never had any lung issues beyond a normal cold.
The orthodontist found a spot on my son's brain when they did xrays of his teeth. We went for special testing and they discovered that it was a kinked blood vessel. No issue at all. Lots of things (besides cancer) can cause these shadows on imaging. Most lumps in breast tissue aren't even cancer. Its just that we always think of cancer first because it is so scary.
I hope you will let us know what you find out.
