6mm Subpleural Nodule At Right Middle Lobe With Atelectasis
Minimal atelectatic medically rt middle lobe and lingular area on lt with multiple small nodules with subpleural density and pleural-based no pleural effusion or pneumothorax what does this mean?
Bronchoscopy: First you will need a diagnosis of what these nodules are. The atelectases in both lungs should be evaluated by looking at the airways to make sure there is no nodule in the airways causing collapse and in addition the bronchoscopy may just give all the diagnosis. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Ct shows mild atelectasis right middle lobe and bilateral lower lobes as well as a few 4mm nodules left lower lobe. Should i be seen asap?
No: These findings do not require urgent management. Atelectasis just means small areas of lung do not have enough air in them which can be due to your history of asthma. 4mm nodules are usually benign but require a 12mo follow-up if you have no smoking history or 6mo follow-up if you've ever smoked. ...Read more
I probably have linear subsegmental atelectasis in the inferior right middle lobe and nonspecific stable subpleural ground glass density in the right middle lobe.
Is this something serious or reason to be alerted?
Cause?: These findings need to be put in perspective by your doctor. He/she can describe them with respect to you and recommend what, if anything, you should do. ...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
A CT finding of a, stellate 1.6 x 1.1 CM subpleural right anterior segment upper lobe nodule is present. Additional 2mm middle lobe nodule is cancer?
Could Be: The right upper lobe nodule sounds most suspicious and may require some sort of biopsy to be sure. Comparison with any older imaging studies might add more information. The 2mm nodule is too small to assess and would likely be put under surveillance. Hope things work out for the best. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Chest CT scan subsegmental atelectasis versus fibrosis in medial margins of r \l upper lobes abutting mediastinum was f/u for 6mm ground glass nodule
The fibrosis and : Atelectasis isnt anything to worry about, just some lung tissue collapsed on itself and scarring. The ground glass nodule is something that may need longer term follow up to make sure it doesnt grow. These can be due to something called atypical adenomatous hyperplasia (aah). ...Read more
Pleural bassed nodule at posterior aspect os mid cephalad right lower lobe of lung 7 x 4 mm. Also linear atelectasis within right midlung. Age 73?
Follow up of nodule: The linear atelectasis is nothing to worry about. The pleural based nodule sounds like a potentially benign nodule. Surveillance of a nodule of this size, however, is frequently recommended, particularly if you have a smoking history.

I had a 7mm right middle lobe nodule that grew to 9mm in 2 months and now has tiny cluster nodules around it. How likely is it cancer?
Your question is serious need more information?
The radiologist impression? ...Read more
The radiologist is: not sure what to make of this small nodule. If it was to be calcified then it would be one thing. For example an old residual of infection. This is not calcified. This opens up many other possibilities. An old infection is still a consideration. It depends on where it is in the lung, how many and do you have an old study. It may be worthwhile waiting a short period and repeat the ct to check it ...Read more
Have 2x1 x 1x1 cm irregular subsolid nodule in my right middle lobe. 51 yrs old. How would you treat it?
9 mm nodule in rt middle lobe.3 mos was 1.4 cm and also found 3.5mm nod in same lobe. 6 mos both stable but now have 6 mm nod in rt lower lobe.remove?
Generally, one does: NOT go in and surgically remove multiple nodules in the lungs. A biopsy may be necessary to get a diagnosis, but this would be to obtain a specimen for microscopic analysis & culture. Once it's been determined what the nodules consist of, then a appropriate treatment can be implemented. Sometimes no treatment is needed. Best wishes. Dr. Anne. ...Read more

April chest CT clear. July CT shows 6mm fissural nodule medial segment middle lobe Is it best to rescan in 3 months or biopsy/remove. Fatigued.Thanks
Risk factors/Disc.: It would be helpful to review clinical history and CT findings during a virtual consultation. According to the AAFP: " The workup for patients with solid solitary pulmonary nodules measuring 8 mm or greater in diameter, nodules measuring less than 8 mm in diameter, and subsolid nodules should be guided by the probability of malignancy, imaging results, and the risks and benefits....." ...Read more
I had a small 4-6mm intestine carcinoid tumor. Now my ct showed a 4-5mm non-calcified nodule in the right middle lobe of my lung. Should I be worried?
I have a 4mm nodule in my right lower lung lobe. Doctors suspect its benign. Risk outweighs benefits to aspirate it out.Do nodules hurt? I feel pain
No: The short answer is no, lung nodules are in areas of the body which do not have pain receptors. A nodule that involves the pleura (lining or edge) of the lung might present with pain if large enough and if it grows through the parietal pleura (lining of the chest wall) but a 4mm lung nodule would not be painful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
