Are Nodules Found In The Lung Curable
Curable? No: Lung nodules are very common, and over 95% are benign scars that require no "cure". They don't go away, and therefore are not "cured" but they are harmless. The 4-5% of lung nodules that are cancer require some form of treatment and many of these are curable. This depends upon thorough evaluation of the nodule, staging and treatment by experienced teams. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

I have just be told I have 2mm lingular pulmonary nodular. Where is that located on the lung? And what should I expect in the weeks to come?

I have nodules on my lungs, with the largest one being 4mm i also have one on my thyroid and voice box. The lung nodules were found incidentally during a CT of my bowels. Could this be sarcoidosis?

Sarcoidosis in the lung is squally symptomatic. You will need to have few serial ct scans to mae sure they don't change in any way. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: A lung nodule caused by coccidioidomycosis (cause of valley fever) is just a clump of inflammatory debri. This is the bodies' way of "wrapping up" the infecting organism so that it cannot cause any further lung injury. They do not need to be surgically excised as they cannot do you any harm.
