Can Mold Cause Lung Nodules
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
Is there a way to link my Lung Nodules to the extreme levels of Aspergillosis (and a handful of other bad molds) I was living in?
Possible but: One needs to rule out other conditions which may be associated with lung nodules (previous exposure to pathogenic fungi , sarcoid etc) and to confirm the diagnosis with lab testing etc. before one can draw any conclusion.

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.
