They tell based on experience, if you look at the CT scan image, some nodules look so apparently like cancer. However, biopsy is still necessary.
Thank you so much, I totally appreciate your time to answer my question!
Hi Bob, it is not a final "sure" about it. But since most of them have experience, they feel it looks like cancer. Final diagnosis is based on the pathological results. This is a reminder for you for further check soon.
