Pleural disease including plaques and calcification as well as mesothelioma are side affects of asbestos. Lung cancer is also a problem. Don't ignore this nodule. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

It depends: It depends on the patients medical history, smoking history, whether or not the nodule has grown over time, and what exactly it looks like. The patient's peace of mind is a factor as well. If a patient feels strongly that he would like a lung nodule removed that should factor into the equation also. ...Read more

What symptoms can a benign lung nodule cause, and whether it causes blockage and effect on breathing?

Mostly none: In general, lung nodules benign and malignant are asymptomatic (without symptoms). That said, benign is more likely associated with infection. Thus symptoms such as infection and pneumonia may be present; fever, cough, etc.... Other symptomatic nodules may be from sarcoidosis. There is a large list of symptoms with sarcoid. ...Read more

In 72'-74', I was on a U.S Navy ship, which was full of asbestos. In 05', I was diagnosed with that left lung nodule. May this have caused my nodule?

You're still alive: If the nodule was found ten years ago, and you had no illness as a result, then this is not cancer. If it were cancer, you might have a pretty good case. I'm glad it's not. Asbestosis itself presents as diffuse thickening of the lung texture, or of the pleural surfaces. Most lung nodules in non-smokers (hope that's you) are old histoplasmosis, which is harmless. Thanks for your service. ...Read more
