My wifes last xray revealed a 2 cm nodule on her lung what could be the causes?

Multiple causes: I'd need to know a lot more about her. Does/did she smoke? Have any chemical exposures? Why did she have the X-ray? Any history of cancer in the past? Does she have fever, chills, terrible night sweats? Weight loss? 2 cm is pretty big. She needs further evaluation. Read more

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

Is a 1.5 CM nodule spiculated lung bad?

Is a 1.5 CM nodule spiculated lung bad?

Possibly: A 1.5 cm spiculated lung nodule should be further evaluated, especially if the patient is a current / former smoker. Pet scan study might help to determine the metabolic activity of the lesion (higher suv more likely to be a malignancy while lower suv more likely to be benign / reactive). Biopsy may also be indicated. Close radiologic and clinical follow up at very minimum. Read more

Pulmonologist said a lung nodule I have is benign, I still feel uneasy about his answer, should I seek a second opinion? Nodule is 2 CM calcified

Pulmonologist said a lung nodule I have is benign, I still feel uneasy about his answer, should I seek a second opinion? Nodule is 2 CM calcified

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

Have nodules 1.1 CM in upper right lung and 2 nodules 1.4 CM and 8mm in left thyroid all non calcified. What do I do?

Have nodules 1.1 CM in upper right lung and 2 nodules 1.4 CM and 8mm in left thyroid all non calcified. What do I do?

See your doctor: Nodules in the lung a very common, almost always benign, but depending on your age, family history, smoking history, and the appearance of the nodules, there are varying means of proving they are benign. These include everything from doing nothing, to surgery to remove a nodule. I suggest neither of these extremes in your case, but do suggest you see a doctor who sees a lot of nodules. Read more

My CT discovered 6 lung nodules from. 2 -. 8 cm.. 8 node is calcified, others are not. Discoid atelectasis in the upper right lung. Concerning?

Yes: Many causes including metastatic cancer. Do you have history of cancer? Breast, colon, prostrate and bladder most common. Also non cancerous conditions like hamartomas, sarcoidosis, rhemautoid nodules, infectious conditions, lymphomas and kaposis sarcomas etc. Please, see a pulmonologist if this is a new finding. Good luck. 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?

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

Ct chest adrenal nodule 1.9 CM right. Lungs demonstrate babisalar dependent atelectasis small subpleural bullae noted right up lobe trace pericardial?

Adrenal eval: Hi. The adrenal nodule needs to be evaluated. What were the Hounsfield units on the non-contrast scan of the nodule? Your endocrinologist will determine: 1) if it's producing any hormones, and 2) if it's growing. If high Hounsfield units, it needs sooner evaluation. Any hirsutism, amenorrhea, diabetes, serious high blood pressure, sweating, headache, palpitations, etc? Good luck! Read more
