nodule on isthmus

During a US I was told I have a 19mm nodule right in the middle of my isthmus.  They have done a biopsy but still awaiting results.  Everything I can find to read on this subject seems to talk about the nodules (cancerous or not) growing on one of the lobes, I've not been able to find anything about it growing directly on the isthmus.  Is this uncommon?

I see isthmus nodules every day - this is not unusual and the evaluation is the same as it would be for a right or left lobe nodule.
