Anemia: Do not know what you are feeling in your lung, but if your hemoglobin is 5.8 gm/dl you need to see your doctor asap. If this is 5, 800, 000 rbc/ml then that is high and needs to be looked at since secondary erythrocytosis may occur with underlying malignancies and other conditions. Go and see your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

Lung (Definition)

What do you suggest if my dying father was diagnosed with lung cancer in october 2010 and has 2 large masses in his left lung (upper lobe)?

What do you suggest if my dying father was diagnosed with lung cancer in october 2010 and has 2 large masses in his left lung (upper lobe)?

Assess options: If symptomatic, consider radiation to the areas of disease causing the symptoms. Chemotherapy can be considered, if agents available. Surgery can be done for palliation but typically is not used. A lot depends on how well your father is doing now with these treatments, as well as the extent of the cancer in the body. I am sorry to hear that your father has to deal with this cancer. ...Read more

What does suspicious densities is seen in the right upper lobe and left mid lung means? Is it seious or not? Pls answer.

I assume: you are referring to a chest xray? "Suspicous densities" is not very specific, but it sounds like you have abnormal findings(e.g. mass,nodule,infiltrate,scarring) that might require further evaluation with a CT scan or other tests. Talk to your doc about what the results mean. No way to tell based on limited info how serious it might be. Take care. ...Read more

Need evaluation: He would need further evaluation. The fact that he is a former smoker, still gives him significant risk for lung cancer. I dont know the size of the 1st nodule- if possible, a core biopsy should be done to rule out malignancy. A pet scan also needs to be done if not been done in the past- although however, negative finding on the 2nd nodule will not rule out cancer completely due to its size. ...Read more
