Lung (Definition)

Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more

Biopsy may also be indicated. Close radiologic and clinical follow up at very minimum. ...Read more

Biopsy: A calcified nodule is likley benign. You need to compare thx xray with an old film of your chest if you have. Ct of the chest is helpful. If any doubt tissue biopsy will confirm the nature of this nodule. If you are not comfortable with the response nothing is wrong with getting another opinion. ...Read more

Mcrc patient had 1 liver met n 1 node . Irinotecan given , but a lung nodule 0.5 CM appears during the 4 months he on irinotecan . Is this fast spread?

Depends: I am not an oncologist and not the best to answer this question. Each cancer has their own growth rate. The key is to be on the best therapy, whether it be chemotherapy, radiation or surgery, for that cancer. A new lung nodule means that the treatment is not controlling the spread of the cancer. You should consider an alternative treatment. I do not treat and don't know Irinotecan. ...Read more
