What is a dense 8mm left lower nodule of the lung? Dense nodular opacity in the left lower lobe is likely a calcified granuloma. What does that mean to me?

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
