Abnormal CT scan of chest what could this be? Ct scan of chest

There : There are a huge variety of things that can be seen on a ct scan of the chest that are abnormal. Some are dangerous and others are incidental findings. You should be discussing the results of the ct scan with your doctor( the doctor that ordered the scan for you) to find out exactly what was found and what to do about it. They are in the best position to explain what the results mean in the context of your symptoms or the reason the test was ordered.

Cannot tell: An abnormal chest xray is often followed by more testing, such as a ct, to try to tell why it is abnormal.

Slight: Low counts may be normal, more profound levels may be of concern. If that's the case, should see hematologist. Good luck!
