Depends: Depends on what the nodule is? First you need appropriate diagnosis. This is best by a multidiscipline comprehensive thoracic surgical lung nodule program. If the nodule is a tumor, treatment will depend on type and staging if malignant. ...Read more
What does it mean to have " stable right apical lung enhancing nodule, likely to represent hamartoma"?
6 x 8 mm stable spiculated apical plueral based nodular scarring & pulmonary nodules 4 x 6 mm. Follow up CT scan in 6 mos. Ok? Quit smoking 20 yrs ago
Lung nodules: Based on the size and the risk factors, I think a follow up approach with serial ct chest for a total period of 2 years would be recommended and is evidence-based. The second ct chest would be in 3-6 months. ...Read more

Heterogeneous appearance thyroid gland with complex solid & cystic nodule posterior margin upper pole right lobe 1.5x1.4x1.0cm, what does this mean?
Possible biopsy: Many people have thyroid issues and have ultrasounds that can show a multitude of issues. Most findings are benign and typically are cysts. Biopsies are done routinely for solid nodules to make sure they are benign or not. You may require some thyroid replacement but thyroid blood tests are also required. She your primary or an endocrinologist since they specialize in thyroid issues. Good luck ...Read more
Left thyroid lobe is 3x1.1x0.9cm. The nodule is 5x7x7mm with hypervascularity, microcalcifications and posterior capsule. What is the chance of cancer?
I had a breast ultrasound and the results say "there is a well defined 4 by 3 by 4 mm nodule with posterior acoustic enhancement but with internal echoes" what does that mean? What's next?
Can't tell: Based on that description, it could be anything from a cyst with some internal debris (benign) to a small cancer (less likely at age 28. Options include close observation with ultrasound and needle biopsy/ aspiration. Talk with your referring md about what the radiologist advised, but do not ignore. ...Read more

U/s show mild lymphadenopathy small hypoechoic nodule inferior posterior to left lob of thyroid could rep aditional parathyroid adenoma/lymphadenopath?
Pleural bassed nodule at posterior aspect os mid cephalad right lower lobe of lung 7 x 4 mm. Also linear atelectasis within right midlung. Age 73?
Follow up of nodule: The linear atelectasis is nothing to worry about. The pleural based nodule sounds like a potentially benign nodule. Surveillance of a nodule of this size, however, is frequently recommended, particularly if you have a smoking history. Please sure to talk to your doctor for the appropriate steps. ...Read more

Norm. Tsh, pth 103, tpo ab 839, calcium 383, abnormal thyroid/para-heterogeneous parenchymal echotexture-thyroid, no nodule, ill defined hypoecoic lesion posterior to rt thyroid lobe, ill def para nodule?
Hi. Your PTH is high and MEN-1 in the family. That calcium makes no sense unless it's a 24-hour urine calcium, in which case it's high. What's your serum calcium?
Your thyroid autoantibodies are high, and your thyroid function is normal. MEN-1 is not assoc. With autoimmune thyroid disease, so that looks like maybe an unrelated finding. Most MEN-1 patients get primary hyperparathyroidism before 57 ...Read more

Each patient may need different things based on what else is going on. Have a conversation with your doc about it ...Read more
Should I be concerned after mammography? There is a 1.1 cm rounded nodular density in the superior right breast, middle/posterior depth junction.
Mammogram: There are various mammographic features that determine the level of suspicion, however at this point it sounds like you haven't had an ultrasound, so the evaluation is not complete. Usually these turn out benign, e.g. a cyst, but if it is solid on ultrasound, needle biopsy may be needed to establish a diagnosis. Those usually turn out benign too. So yes, concerned but not alarmed. ...Read more
A very faint subpleural nodular density in the left lower lobe posterolaterally noted on CT Scan along with minor nodularity to posterior lung bases?
The result of my chest xray shows a suspicious nodular density overlying the left first anterior rib. Another nodular opacity is seen overlying the left 9th posterior rib is this means that my breast cancer already metastisis in my lungs? Do I have to und
Advice: It sounds like you have a complex medical history and a potentially complicated situation. The best advise I can give is to ask the doctor who ordered the x-ray to explain it to you and refer you to the appropriate caregiver. I wish you well. ...Read more
Nodules: Usually smaller is better. So in this regard, 9mm (0.9cm) is better than 12mm (1.2cm). However, if we're talking about cancer then another important factor is how aggressive the cancer cells are, i.e., how fast they grow/spread. And this you can't tell by size alone but need to look at cells under a microscope and also evaluate for any other nodules or masses. ...Read more
