The term "variant of unknown significance" (VUS) is used to describe a DNA change found in an individual that has not yet been reliably characterized as benign or pathogenic.
While the analogy has been made between the DNA VUS and the finding of an incidental mass on radiographic imaging, there is an overwhelming difference in the prevalence of these two findings.
If enough DNA is analyzed in any given individual, then not only is there sure to be a VUS, but also the sheer number of variants of unknown significance in an individual's complete genome is a bit staggering.
