Future evaluation: Nodules can be very common in the chest. A lot of the decision of what to do with your nodule depends on your smoking history. If you have never smoked then the likelihood that this represents an early cancer is low. There is a national guideline in the United States for repeating a series of ct scans to ensure that the nodule does not grow. Your doctor will plan this out with you. ...Read more

Lung (Definition)

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 am having back and chest pain, two xrays showed nodule on mid left lung, having CT wed. Could also have opacified sinus sphenoid? Pneumonia?

I am having back and chest pain, two xrays showed nodule on mid left lung, having CT  wed. Could also have opacified sinus sphenoid? Pneumonia?

Pneumonia unlikely: If only back/chest pain symptoms, pneumonia unlikely--expect cough, phlegm, fever, malaise. Chest pain on deep breathing may indicate pleurisy, probably viral in origin. Opacified sinus probably related to nasal mucosal irritation from smoking. Agree with planned eval of nodule. Look for other causes of back and chest pain--new exercise? New position in work? ...Read more

I have a subpleural solitary lung nodule in the peripheral of the lung base. 2mm. I am 28/f. Smoked for 9 years, but quit 4 years ago. Cancer? Scared!

I have a subpleural solitary lung nodule in the peripheral of the lung base. 2mm. I am 28/f. Smoked for 9 years, but quit 4 years ago. Cancer? Scared!

Barely visible: If it enlarges by ct then removal is an option. It is so small at 2mm it can be hard to find. Gather any old x-rays, history of trauma, pneumonia etc. It may be an old scar but needs to be followed by pulmonologist or thoracic surgeon. ...Read more

28/f. Subplueral lung nodule in peripheral base. Accidental finding on ct. Quit smoking 4 years ago. What's the chance its cancer? I'm petrified.

28/f. Subplueral lung nodule in peripheral base. Accidental finding on ct. Quit smoking 4 years ago. What's the chance its cancer? I'm petrified.

Some chance,, : Because you've had a history of smoking there is some chance that this can be cancer. However, you're young at 28 years and it takes a long history of smoking for this to develop, and the location is on the periphery which is not a common place for lung cancer from smoking to show up in. It may be something else that isn't related to smoking. It's best to see your dr. ; possibly get it biopsied. ...Read more

What does suspicious densities is seen in the right upper lobe and left mid lung means? Is it seious or not? Pls answer.

I assume: you are referring to a chest xray? "Suspicous densities" is not very specific, but it sounds like you have abnormal findings(e.g. mass,nodule,infiltrate,scarring) that might require further evaluation with a CT scan or other tests. Talk to your doc about what the results mean. No way to tell based on limited info how serious it might be. Take care. ...Read more
