Bilobed Nodule Left Lower Lung
6mm nodule left lung base pleural surface and faint 6mm nodule on left lower sub pleural lobe found from CT. Enlarged heart found on right side. Also very slight alveolitis found in right upper lobe. ?
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
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

Cat scan or pet scans are not microscopic examinations by a pathologist. If nodules become calcified most likely grannulomas. Carcinomas and grannulomas look alike early on. Close periodic f/u versus early excissional bx advised. Needle bx not DX unless cancer diagnosed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Thyroid ultrasound1.4x1.1x1.1cm rim calcified nodule left mid thyroid.Well circumscribe hypoechoic1.4x1.9x1cm nodule w/mild internal flow.Is it cancer?
Let's find out: This may be nothing but a colloid nodule in a developing nodular goiter. If the radiologist can't rule out cancer, you may be getting a fine-needle aspiration. With this pattern of calcification, it's unlikely to be an aggressive tumor even if it is cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Subcentimeter hypodense nodule on left thyroid lobe with coarse focus of calcification---subcentimeter left thyroid nodule.Non-specific in nature.
Thyroid nodules: Most nodules less than 1 cm are not concerning and can be monitored with periodic ultrasounds. Some features such as calcification may heighten concern. Much more information is necessary in your situation. Is there family history of thyroid cancer, personal history of hyper or hypothyroidism, and radiation exposure? You need to discuss this with an endocrinologist and arrange a treatment plan. ...Read more
Finally got my CT scan report. It says calcified left hilar lymph nodes and calcified left lower lobe granuloma. History of oral cancer. Benign?
"Granuloma": The airways are a common portal of entry of organisms that can cause an inflammatory reaction we call granulomatous. As these age, they become more scar-like and occasionally will calcify. An infectious site from the lung can sometimes seed lymh nodes in the mediastinum and then calcify as well. While tumors sometimes also calcify the radiologic pattern is usually different. So good news 4u ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

But, potential diagnosis is fairly large, numerous possibilities. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
