Congealed Mass In Lung
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

What percentage of extensive calcified lymph nodes in pulmonary hila, combined with bright red blood in sputum are cancerous in nature?
Very low: Cancerous nodes very seldom calcify much. In my old home in Kansas City, many (maybe most) folks had some calcium flecks from old histoplasmosis. I'm very concerned though if you're coughing up blood. That's cancer until proved otherwise, and you're entitled to have calcified nodes from some other cause. Please get it properly worked up. Best wishes. ...Read more
Chest X-ray results say curvilinear density in the R pericardial region. Could represent fat pad or small R middle lobe infiltrate. Lung cancer?
It is unlikely: that it is cancer, but it still may require further evaluation with a CT scan to be sure. If you had any previous chest xrays elsewhere, have them sent to the radiologist to compare with the new one. That could solve the issue without any additional tests. Talk to your doctor about the results. ...Read more
Questionable small density at the left upper lung field and linear atelectasis is superimposed on the left hilum.What? Cancer? Remainder lungs clear.
Possible: The possibility of cancer is almost always there. The risk depends on the smoking history, family history of cancer, the size of the mass, etc.. Smokers are at higher risk. Certain cancers are familial. Larger spots and those with ragged edges are more likely to be cancerous. Consultation with oncologist or lung specialist may be considered.. ...Read more
Does inflammatory vs malignancy in the remarks of CT scan of lungs with 203cc solid mass mean its cancer?
No: No. It is at times difficult to differentiate inflammation/infection from a malignancy on ct. Pet/ct may more helpful where there is suspicion. However, this may also limited in differentiating infection/ inflammation from cancer. That being said, imaging does not arrive at a pathological diagnosis. When possible, any suspicion of lung cancer requires pathological confirmation through a biopsy. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
