Let's not jump into: The worst conclusions. Your are 30 y/o, nonsmoker. If you look at the study, 1994, univ of miami, people who developed lung cancer under age 36 were mainly exposed to marijuana, inconclusive but something to think about. In all likelihood this is part of your rheum problem such as rheumatoid nodules or infectious such as fungal. You need a bronch/biopsy for dx. I wish you luck, keep spirits up.See 1 more doctor answer
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
6mm ground glass ill defined upper left lung what percentage that its not cancer I am getting another CT scan in dec. To check for growth?
Lung lesion: At your age and with this description I would think there is an overwhelming chance that this lesion is benign. I agree with a repeat scan in a couple months. If it grows a ct guided needle biopsy could be performed by an interventional radiologist.
Lung CT scan showed small areas of ground glass opacity on upper rt. Lobe consistent with mild pneumonitis. Is this cancer? When should I repeat scan
CT had 1.6cm & two 7mm ground glass nodules in lungs after 6 mo of cough & chest pain. Had blood clots in lungs 2x. Ex smoker. Could it be cancer?
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.
Chest cta notes 3mm and 5mm ground glass nodules. Dr didn't seem worried. I read these are more likely to be cancer. What should I do?
Follow up checks: Lung nodules on CT cans are common; most of these nodules are benign unless you are a heavy smoker. The best way to resolve the question of them being benign or cancerous is to obtain a follow up CT scan in 6 months. If they remain unchanged they are considered benign. You may have to change your doctor if the first one is not willing to do a follow up with a CT scan of your chest.
May be: A question of the form can A show B is almost always answered maybe, because you cannot completely exclude the possibility that it may or may not demonstrate the finding in question. Also a mass has to have at least 1, 000, 000, 000 cells before it is visible on a contemporary scan.
From nothing: To terminal. Early on, no symptoms. May be identified on x-ray or ct for something independent. Cough hemoptysis- coughing blood pain in apex or chest wall shortness of breath. Progress from tiny, to small stage 1, to local spread to lymph nodes, to spread with distant metastasis stage 4.See 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. 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
