Question:

I had a vatt lung biopsy Dr took pics of the lung before said I had severl vasculiar spots.What does that mean.

Answer:

Thank you for your question.  It is difficult to know what your doctor meant by vascular spots without having more information.  These may be abnormal blood vessels or areas of bleeding.  It would be best to discuss this question with your doctor and review the biopsy results as well as any x-rays or CT scans that may have also been performed.
