Low Density Soft Tissue Lung Nodule
Worried about a solid lung nodule 4 mm in 2009 and is now 7 mm, non calcified, smooth borders. Rad said it looks like benign soft tissue, possible granuloma. Do non calcified granulomas grow, and could a cancer grow at that growth rate?

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

The muscle loss may be due to de-conditioning (not using the muscles enough), due to your fatigue.
