2 cm mass to left lower lobe. History of pancreatic cancer cured. Reason?

Hi, I'm at work so only have time for a quick question. My dad had pancreatic cancer and they told him he was cancer free in december after the surgery. Had follow up chemo and follow up ct which showed he was clear. In february he was in a car accident with a follow up ct which also showed nothing. Now in march there is a 2 cm mass to the left lower lobe. What do you think about that?

From the report you have send it seems that there is a 2 cm lesion in left lobe of (?lungs i guess).Since he had pancreas cancer in past ,the mass is more likely due to metastasis of cancer.
He needs to get fine needly aspiration cytology of mass for confirmation of diagnosis,

Best wishes
