Can a tumor be detedted during a TEE test?

I have asked this question so many times but never received an answer.  My husband had to have his galbladder removed and prior to this the hospital did a Transesophogeal test because he had an artificial heart valve.  They came back and said they saw something but didn't know what it was..  They ignored this and did the operation.  He never felt right after this surgery.  He was anemic, lost a lot of weight etc.  A year and a half later  he went into the hospital to remove a bone spur from his shoulder that turned out to be a tumor (non-small cell (squamous) lung cancer).  I still wonder if that could have been the beginning of the tumor in the bronchi that they saw.  Any information would be greatly appreciated.
