Dr. Mark Gromisch answered:

I had egd shows localized nodular mucosa duodenal bulb and hyperemic gastric body.I also have an adrenal tumor on right side. Is this cancer?

EDG findings

Adrenal_tumor
Adrenal tumors are often benign, CT/ultrasound is often beneficial in the determination. Your EGD findings suggest gastritis (erythema) , and nodular duodenitis. Both are usually benign in your age group. Occasionally a biopsy of these areas may warrant repeat endoscopic evaluation in the future if the pathology suggests tissue changes that could be premalignant.

I have a nodule on the duodenum of 22mm and it is flat. What does this mean. Can it turn into cancer if not removed?

Needs a biopsy

The duodenum is not a common site of cancer, nor of nodules, except in certain cancer-predisposed families. The prognosis for an individual becomes clearer once the tissue has been examined under the microscope, since a nodule could be non-malignant, pre-cancerous, or cancer. Usually an upper endoscopy is required.

What is a lung nodule?

Solid mass in lung

Chest-lung
A lung nodule is a soft tissue mass that is located somewhere within the lung itself. It can be a benign or malignant nodule. Following it with CT Scans to see if it changes in size is one way to manage them or going directly to biopsy.

medicine for thyroid nodule?

Depends on problem

Nodule
3 major categories of potential health issues caused by thyroid nodules: a) large size affecting swallowing, breathing, voice ; b) over active production of thyroid hormone (hyperthyroid) ; and c) ~5% of nodules are cancer. Methimazole and PTU are pills that block thyroid hormone production, treating b) above. Radioactive I-131 can shrink/destroy nodule, treating a) and b). Need surgery for c).

Dr. David N. Dang answered:

What is an echogenic nodule?

Small nodule.

Ultrasound
When something is echogenic, it's brighter than the adjacent tissues or the background tissue of the organ. Technically it should be termed "hyperechoic" but "echogenic" is more commonly used.. It also means that it's more likely (not always) solid than fluid. A "nodule" is small, usually less than 2 cm in size.

Is vocal cord nodule painful?

Typically no

Nodule
vocal cord nodules/cysts typically do not cause pain, but often hoarseness. If the cyst is infected or becoming too large, may cause pain and difficult breathing etc... Obviously you should follow-up with your doc about the nodule and make sure it is not malignant/canerous etc.. good luck

Dr. Eric Whitman answered:

How is a thyroid nodule treated?

Complicated question

Antithyroid_medication
Most nodules are initially treated with a biopsy. Additional therapy, if any, will depend on the results of that biopsy and any other symptoms or signs associated with that nodule. In truth, the treatment for any thyroid nodule is very individualized and impossible to generalize further.
