ct scan with differential diagnosis

I just had a ct scan with contrast because of bad x ray. the differential diagnosis said primary bronchogenic carcinoma, metastasis or non calcified granuloma. i have these things in both lungs can someone give me an idea of what all this means?

Hi there!

Primary bronchogenic carcinoma refers to cancer arising from primary lung tissue. Metastasis refers to cancer arising due to a primary elsewhere in the body, with secondary spread to the lungs. Granuloma is the formation of an inflammatory mass, usually in response to an infectious agent.
Hope the information is helpful.

Take care!
