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

Let's not jump into: The worst conclusions. Your are 30 y/o, nonsmoker.

Needs biospy: Small nodules can be cancer, but they would need to be biopsied. Many times, the nodules are just scars and not cancer. If you find nodules on a cat scan of your chest, depending on the size, they need to be followed to make sure they don't grow or look ominous enough to warrant a biopsy. What to do about nodules also depends on your risk for lung cancer, i.e., were/are you a smoker, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Generally no worries: These are likely "healed" TB or fungal infection that the body has "walled off" and calcified. Usually called calcified granulomas. Very common, especially in certain parts of the world where specific fungi are endemic in the environment - in those areas, nearly every one has them and they do no harm. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Follow up us examination in six months suggested. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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

What's a 14mm noncalcified left upper lobe parenchymal pulmonary mass adjacent atelectasis.Left upper lobe bronchus/hillar peribronchial cuffing/thick?
Mgt PHI: The imaging may be uploaded to an inbox consultation. From your description I would suggest a follow up imaging study with an evaluation with additional information. Have you smoked? Is there a family history of cancer? Have you been tested for any infections? The mass is probably impinging on the airway and causing areas of collapse, called atelectasis. This area is prone to secondary infection ...Read more

Ct angiogram shows non calcified opacity on middle lobe 4mm. Appearance of benign intrapulmonary lymph node on lung with no pleural abnormalites.
Opacity: The question to your doctor should be - is this an incidental pulmonary nodule or something more concerning. If the ct angio was done for something completely unrelated, and it was a true incidental finding, some guidelines say that under a certain size (4mm) for low risk patients (no smoking, etc), then no follow up is needed. Otherwise a biopsy or interval imaging followup is appropriate. ...Read more

Curious: More information is required. The pet uptake (measured in standard uptake value or suv), is low level, but not low enough to guarantee benignity. Given age and + ppd, i would suspect this could be an active granuloma. Given your age, i would encourage consultation with a pulmonologist and full review of all your records first. Lung surgery is serious business. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
It depends: Not all lung nodules are alike. The odds that a nodule is cancer depends in the appearance and size of the nodule, the medical history of the patient, the smoking history of the patient, and how the nodule changes over time. 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
