Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

If there is uncertain opinion about the nature of the masses then there is no point in waiting out for 6 months. Excisional biopsy should be the way to go in my opinion. You should take another opinion from an internal medicine doctor and a radiologist for the way forward to be more clear.

Wishing you best of health
