Unknowable


There are a lot of possibilities. It is a density in the lung identified on an X-ray or CT For a small nodule CT scan follow up at 3-4 months early on can document any growth or change. If enlarging-REMOVE. If calcifying it is likely benign and needs nothing done. In the Midwest histoplasmosis can be the cause of single or multiple such findings

Anything


It means there is a little mass in your lung. It could be anything. If you are smoker it could be cancer. If you are not there are multiple other causes. You will need repeat CT scan to see whether there is any increase in size

See your doctor


None of us can answer this question without looking at the scans and examining you in person. This is best answered by your oncologist and surgeon. I highly recommend that you make an appointment and get evaluated and have a conversation with them. Good luck with everything.

Would get checked


a lung nodule is not cancer per se, but it is unusual for a noncancerous nodule to grow. In the setting of smoking, this would be worrisome and require further evaluation

Would you operate at once if lung nodule went from 14,2x10,9mm-14,2x 11,6mm in a 2 month period,round ,non smoker 55yo. Thoractomy 2 days later.

Choices


Follow for another few month since this may not be a change. Full history, and review of all xrays and CT scans is appropriate. if followed for some time already, and no other histoplasmosis or tb history, one might remove it. The benign ones will stay about the same, and calcify over time. Fear of delay diagnosing cancer is the issue since early removal has best survival.

noncalcified 6mm upper lung nodule. stayed that way for 3 years. 4th year it grew to 8.4mm. 5th year is 1.2cm. Could this be slow growing cancer?

Yes!!!


Lung nodules are checked every 6 months for 2 years. If they DONT change in size, they are considered stable, and annual CXR is in order. If it grows, it COULD be malignant. 6 mm to 1.2 cm is a lot of change, so see your primary care doctor for a pulmonary consultation.

CT shows 9mm lung nodule. 6 month follow up CT shows nodule grown to 30mm and looks hazy. 3 Radiologists & Pulm Dr said hazy & growing so fast means prob inflammation not malignancy. Are they Correct?

What pathologist is going to say is the final ultimate answer , who can not say with out tissue. CT guided biopsy will give the answer , please talk to your doctor, and plan for it , it is a minimum risk procedure.

Biopsy


Bronchoscopy, washings, biopsy and removal if no other significant risks. See the thoracic surgeon and get it removed. Iam not aware of inflammation that is like your description, unless pneumonia behind a tumor

Had an MRI of a lung nodule that is non calcified ... Slow growing since 2001... 9mm... Radiologist made diagnoses of it being benign . How can he make such a diagnoses without truly knowing isn't a ct pet scan better to show or even a biopsy?

D/w your MD


It looks like a benign tumor--over 11 years- it grows slowly and the size is only 9mm. If this were a cancer, the growth will be way more rapid than this is. A PET scan has some degree of false negativity when the size is < 10mm. A biopsy is invasive and it's not easy to do when the size is small. Would recommend surveillance only, & quit smoking .if you smoke. (Btw, CT scan is better than MRI).

Solid mass in lung


A lung nodule is a soft tissue mass that is located somewhere within the lung itself. It can be a benign or malignant nodule. Following it with CT Scans to see if it changes in size is one way to manage them or going directly to biopsy.
