Hi there!

Well, without a detailed report or having an accrual look at the images, it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation; though there are no definite signs of cancer on the CT and the findings are largely suggestive of infections/ inflammation. I would suggest discussing the situation and the suggested management plan in detail with his treating doctor.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
