Kind of Weird: I'd say that is kind of weird. I suggest before you put much stock into what you ever learn in any x ray department, you wait and discuss the results with the doctor who ordered the x ray. A lot of misinformation comes from x ray department employees. I know that will offend some folks, but that is my experience. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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.

Probably reactive: Your lymph nodes are "factories" for your immune system to produce a variety of substances and cells for fighting off infection. They can enlarge with even a cold. The swollen "glands" in the neck when you have strep throat are really lymph nodes. So, mildly enlarged nodes, especially if they have no or little FDG uptake on a pet/ct scan, are likely benign. Please see your health care provider. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
