Lobar Pneumonia X Ray
Can lung cancer ever appear on an xray, be diagnosed as pneumonia and then not appear on two subsequent xrays or was it really pneumonia.
Healthy 34 yr old female. Diagnosed with mild lobar pneumonia March 4. No fever. Levaquin (levofloxacin). Xray now clear. Can I get relapse? Is chance high?
Yes: But this depends upon the cause. If this is pneumococcal pneumonia it will depend upon the sensitivity of the organism to particular antibiotics. If another organism, then isolation of that and testing for sensitivity may help. This is generally 100% resolvable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Pneumonia: Pneumonia and empyema (pus in the pleural space) can produce scarring, depending on the organism, the duration of infection and your reaction to it.

No symptom of pneumonia but X-ray shows on right side a patchy alveolar infiltrates, rule out pneumonia.. What it could be as there is no symptom?
Many causes: Patchy infiltrates on chest xray are a non-specific finding that could be related to many different causes/conditions. In someone who is asymptomatic (like you), a detailed history, physical examination and further testing (if required) based on individual risk factors can help find the cause. Please talk to a lung specialist for further work up. I recommend treating the patient, not the xray. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
