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
What do you recommend if I had a cat scan with IV dye and doctors found a 2.8 mm subpleural upper lobe nodule on my lung- just wondering what does that mean?
Incidental nodule: According to the Fleischner Society guidelines, if you are a low risk patient(nonsmoker etc..), no follow up is necessary for a nodule this size. The risk of malignancy is miniscule. If you are a higher risk patient, follow up CT in 12 months, and if no change, no further follow up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Follow up scan: what are the size of the tiny nodules to be precise here? if they are so small like a few mm only, there is nothing much you can do at this time anyway as biopsy would likely not be able to be done due to the limited size.

Radiologists, pulmonary physicians and thoracic surgeons are best qualified to determine the risk that a particular nodule is cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
