Mgt: The cause of your pulmonary hypertension needs to be identified. A workup may include ruling out blood clots, cardiac disease and chronic pulmonary disease. More details regarding your pulmonary and family history would be helpful. The nodules are relatively small, and can be followed if the risk for malignancy is low.
