I am having back and chest pain, two xrays showed nodule on mid left lung, having CT wed. Could also have opacified sinus sphenoid? Pneumonia?

Opacified sinus probably related to nasal mucosal irritation from smoking. Agree with planned eval of nodule. Look for other causes of back and chest pain--new exercise? New position in work? ...Read more
