I am 62 years old..stopped smoking three years ago...started when I was 14 years old.....had Cscan of chest...Lungs said to be okay..but Dr. said "spot" on Lymph node located on my sternum...between ribs in middle at bottom of ribcage...said will repeat Cscan in three months....What could it be and what does it mean? I do have a Calcified Pancreas.....any relation to that? I am just really confused...and don't know what to ask...and Dr. not saying anything that matters concerning this "spot" and then I looked and according to pictures...there is NOT a Lymph node located there.....Could the spot actually be in my Pancreas and if that is possible....what do I do now?
