There is an interesting article about Incidentalomas and their Management in the American Family Physician, Dec 1. 2014. Page 784 

These are incidental findings found on imaging and possibly leading to unexpected diagnoses.

Although many of these are benign they often lead to a cascade of testing which can be harmful exposing patients to more radiation.

So an unexpected finding or diagnosis that with work-up can lead to patient harm.
