I would have preferred to know what exactly does the biopsy say because an abnormal biopsy could mean a number of things like tuberculosis, filariasis, lymphoma, other cancer etc. The chest x-ray and blood work maybe normal in a number of these and dont contribute much. If your doctor says it is abnormal then i suggest you do as he says and meet the specialist. No point wasting time over something that is definitely not a simple infection.
