Recalled for second scan

My nephew (38 years old) was sent for a hospital scan on Monday due to blood results - I don't know what his results are. However he received a letter yesterday telling him he had to go back on Monday for another scan - my sister contacted the doctors secretary asking why and she was a bit evasive and said probably the first scan had not been clear enough. I am wondering if they saw a nodule or growth and if this is why he is being retested. Has anyone had experience of this?

Cassandra, patient privacy should prevent hospitals telling anyone other than the patient why a test is rescheduled. If the scan was a bit fuzzy that may be why it has been reordered.
