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
Dr found a very small lesion on my lung, i worry about it but he said its so small we dont need a CT scan.how do i ease my mind?
Small lung lesion: Most very small lesions/spots/nodules seen on chest x-ray are benign temporary findings or calcifications. The usual recommendation is for repeat x-ray in 1 year, or perhaps 6 months if you have risk factors(smoking, risk of TB or other lung infection). if there is change, such as increased size then a CT scan may be appropriate. Again most of the small findings on CXR are benign. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

CT scan of lungs (to rule out clot) showed 15mm lesion on sternum, well corticated. Do I need this monitored or further tests?
If it were me, I--: --would. I would want an MRI bone scan. This would give me an idea if solid or cystic, also the nuclear scan would tell me if it is active, ie: destroying bone. The scan would tell me if there is increased bone uptake, meaning the bone is actively being repaired. If @ all suspicious, have it removed. ...Read more

Confused . Mcrc patient . Old CT scan says no lung lesions . New CT report 4 months after .. "Another upper lobe nodule which remains unchanged "?
The nodule: may not have been commented on in the first scan, but it was noticed in the second CT.

Talk to your doctor with any questions. ...Read more
