Now about your insomnia and diarrhea should be an acute food poisoning, or stomach flu, if goes beyond 2-3 days and you feel sick see pcp. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Arteries are defined as blood vessels which carry blood away from the heart (to either the body or lungs). Arteries: higher pressure, thicker walls, stretch (pulse) with each heart contraction & deliver blood to the arterioles which control the flow to individual capillaries.

I have numerous lung nodules. Colon resection done 7/2011. Cancer in mass and 2 lymph nodes. New scan shows numerous nodles in both lungs (very small), largest is a 7.0mm and too close to artery. My CEA is 5.6 and suv is 2. What do u think?
My pulmonary artery was sightly enlarged on chest X-ray & CT (having chest pain, dizziness).Echo showed I do not have pulm htn.Should i be concerned of arteryll? 'm being treated for ctd, likely lupus
No, but follow: It is not a big deal if you do not have plum a. Htn (pah). You may just have a generously sized pulm. A. However, since you are on treatment for a rheumatologic problem, you should follow up every year with a cardiologist for a repeat echo to evaluate for pah and any other problems related to your ctd. Echo is much better than ct as there's no radiation and it's an exam of the heart at work.... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi sir I have calcific density in lungs. I got a job in saudi so I have to cure this as early as possible. Please tell me how to cure quickly?
No quick cure: For this. If it is calcified, it means that it has been there already for some time. It is most likely old infection, such as tuberculosis, so make sure you get checked out for TB and treated if necessary. Other infection or damage can cause it too. You need to see a doctor in any event. ...Read more

Is calcification in right apex (lungs) requred treatment or not and how to remove the marks which reflect in x-ray.
Rule out active TB: Calcification in the apical lungs in a TB endemic region is old healed TB until proven otherwise . However active TB needs to be ruled out if you have any symptoms of shortness of breath, unplanned weight loss, bloody cough, chronic cough etc. It can be done with sputum studies or a ct scan. This " feature" cannot be removed by surgery, drugs, diet. .It is akin to a well healed injury. ...Read more
Hi sir I have calcification scars in lungs. I got a job in dubai so I have to verify this as early as possible. Please tell me how to know. Thankyou?
Old infection: The site and type and shape of scar and calcifications are important. Old infections can scar and can get calcified. Tb is noncaseating and will look more like tissue densities and pleural thickening of the upper part. You are young and i don't suspect asbestosis nor cancer for that matter. I can surmise you are probably healthy and had an infection in the past that calcified. ...Read more

If tumor is 5-7 cm, and the rest true, it is stage iib. After that, it is complex! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is it easy for doctors to tell the difference between calcified nodule in the lung and lung cancer mass ? And what is average age for non smoker?
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
