Absolutely possible: The only way to get a definitive diagnosis is to get a biopsy and look at the tissue under the microscope. If it is in a single lobe it may be best to remove the whole lobe. Speak to iour local pulmonologist and your thoracic surgeon ASAP. ...Read more

Biopsy: You should ask your GI doctor regarding the cause of the nodule, they are usually biopsied to determine if they benign or not.

My 9 year old had very bad chest pain. After a visit to the doctor, we found out he has nodules on his lungs. What would cause that?
Pulmonary nodules have a distinct appearance on CT scans. The pain suggests that the lining of the lung is involved or that there could be involvement of the nerves/muscles or rib cage.
I would suggest that he be tested for TB and other fungal infections. Once a cause is established, immune workup as well. [email protected] Com to review more history/scans. ...Read more
They found some lung nodules in dec just really scared I also have chest pain and shortness of breath sometimes im scared of lung cancer.
Chest pain for weeks following infection. All tests normal except some nodules <7mm. Did chest CT look at heart already, or need a separate test?
Is included in the chest CT but the only information of any use is CORONARY CALCIFICATIONS (VERY UNLIKELY at your age!) The chest pain remains unexpla1ned and probably NOT related to your infection EXCEPT. ..COUGHING. And pulling some INTERCOSTAL muscles...very common in upper respiratory viral infections...this would not "show" on CT scans! Hope this helps!

Dx lung nodules now have chest pain (heart checked out ok). Pain gets more severe w deep breaths or cough, ideas? Could this be serious? Easily winded
Pleurisy: It sounds to me like you have pleuritic pain. Any irritation to the pleura- which is the lining outside the lung would cause such kind of pain. That could be caused by different things including inflammation, infection (viral/bacterial), autoimmune disease, etc. With the lung nodules and now with pleuritic pain- definitely I would advise you to go back to see your pmd- for further eval ...Read more
Had a ct scan 6mm lung nodule they said nothing to worry about is there any chance that the ct could have missed a tumor that maybe causing chest pain?
Yes, Kind of.: The answer to your question is complex. Most lung cancers don't cause chest pain unless they advance into the chest wall. 6 mm is near the detection limit of a CT scan (small). However, it still could be malignant (cancerous). Your risk depends on its location, whether you've smoked, its appearance on CT, other factors. Https://reference. Medscape.

I am having back and chest pain, two xrays showed nodule on mid left lung, having CT wed. Could also have opacified sinus sphenoid? Pneumonia?
Pneumonia unlikely: If only back/chest pain symptoms, pneumonia unlikely--expect cough, phlegm, fever, malaise. Chest pain on deep breathing may indicate pleurisy, probably viral in origin. Opacified sinus probably related to nasal mucosal irritation from smoking. Agree with planned eval of nodule. Look for other causes of back and chest pain--new exercise? New position in work? ...Read more

I get very stressed I get l side chest pain, can last between hours -1/2 days.? Muscular? Is this a cause for concern? 23, ex smoker, moderately fit
Concern: Should be more on how to control your emotion to a level not to cause your chest pain. If you are moderately fit it means you do work out and if you have no CP at that time, it is unlikely you have angina. The length of time of your pain, 1/2 day, means if you have angina you would have had an mi. Your risks seem to be low esp being a young female. Try to live a less stressful life. ...Read more
I have Costochondritis and it's been acting up lately more then ever before. .. I am also a heavy weed smoker. .. Does the weed cause my chest pain?
Weed / costochondrit:
Is it costochondritis and not asthma? Costo you press and feel pain asthma you fell short of breath. Any inhalant can irritate the lung and if you have asthma can exacerbate it. Also there may be impurities since it is not FDA controlled, that are irritating the lung. Try a few days off, also get evaluated for asthma. F/u w/ doc
