10 yr  bc survivor . Cxr showed a solid nodule in lung, or in chest wall.  What's the difference of lung and chest wall?  Scar tissue  fm mastectomy ?

Need Further Work-Up: The chest wall refers to the ribcage and muscles that cover them; the lungs are within the rib cage.

What percentage of extensive calcified lymph nodes in pulmonary hila, combined with bright red blood in sputum are cancerous in nature?

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?

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

Does inflammatory vs malignancy in the remarks of CT scan of lungs with 203cc solid mass mean its cancer?

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 more
