Large Cardiac Silhouette
What to do if I had pulmonary edema during gall bladder removal in 2011. the radiology report reads..the cardiac silhouette?
Surgery-related: It may have been related to surgery. If you have had no symptoms since the surgery then I would simply ask your doctor if a repeat chest x-ray needs to be done.

Ct scan with contrast found a 3mm nodule in my left lung, minimal dependent atelectasis, & an exaggerated cardiac silhouette. What does this mean?
Pulmonary nodule: Any nodule in the lung, no matter what size, needs to be investigated thoroughly. Comparison with previous chest xrays and CT scans would be the priority. If you smoked tobacco, then further tests such as a PET scan and a biopsy and bronchoscopy are indicated. Please see a pulmonologist soon. Best wishes. ...Read more

Always anxited about getting any big disease. Will this anxiety lead me to cardiac arrest?(18 years old male)

The worry should not lead to cardiac arrest but i bet you would feel so much better if you got some help. Please get a referral for cognitive behavioral therapy and see your doctor about possibly trying some medication. ...Read more
