Your doctor is being breezy and trying not to scare you because she knows that the markers are unreliable and likely don't mean anything.
But having that result, it inevitably leads to more testing. This is what in the medical industry is called VOMIT - Victim of Medical Imaging Technology. Seriously, it was an ultrasound tech who told me this, as I was having an ultrasound after an x-ray had spotted something completely incidental to the purpose of the x-ray. That ultrasound led to a CT scan, which led to a long list of incidental findings and another follow-up CT scan, with one more scheduled soon. All of this because of that one incidental finding on an x-ray, and in the end it appears that nothing that has shown up is serious and most if not all I probably would never have known about (or needed to know about) without the imaging.
