Thank you Nancy I appreciate your inputs. God bless you in your journey. My oncologist agreed to help me get a second opinion and my recent bloodwork is clean

@d41king that is great that your oncologist will help you get a second opinion. This article may interest you:

As you likely know, lung nodules can be a sign of many different things. In this discussion in the Lung Health group members offer thoughts that you may appreciate:

If at your second opinion consult, it is determined that a biopsy is not possible, I might suggest you have your questions ready?
– How do I know the cause of the nodule without a biopsy?
– How should I be monitored and how often?
– What are the risks?
