Lung Base Collapse And 6 Mm Subpleural Nodule At Right Middle Lobe With Associated Atelectasis
Minimal atelectatic medically rt middle lobe and lingular area on lt with multiple small nodules with subpleural density and pleural-based no pleural effusion or pneumothorax what does this mean?
Bronchoscopy: First you will need a diagnosis of what these nodules are. The atelectases in both lungs should be evaluated by looking at the airways to make sure there is no nodule in the airways causing collapse and in addition the bronchoscopy may just give all the diagnosis. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. 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
Male 30,Chest CT shows 6 mm nodular density in the left upper lobe,minimal bibasilar dependent atelectasis, have shortness of breath,it needs surgery?
Patchy subpleural parenchymal scars in both apies on right lung middle segmental lobe and inferior lingular ligament?
6mm nodule left lung base pleural surface and faint 6mm nodule on left lower sub pleural lobe found from CT. Enlarged heart found on right side. Also very slight alveolitis found in right upper lobe. ?
My CT shows copd. Linear infiltrates in the superior segment of lt lower lobe associated with a 6 mm nodule and there is a 2-3 nodule no effusion.
You need follow-up: COPD is unfortunately too common and mostly from tobacco smoking, which is preventable. The infiltrate suggests infectious process such as pneumonia, which is treatable. The 6mm nodule is quite small and so not concerning at this time...But these could change/grow as in lung cancer. Thus, some repeat study in maybe 3-6-12 months interval maybe needed for surveilance. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Pleural bassed nodule at posterior aspect os mid cephalad right lower lobe of lung 7 x 4 mm. Also linear atelectasis within right midlung. Age 73?
Follow up of nodule: The linear atelectasis is nothing to worry about. The pleural based nodule sounds like a potentially benign nodule. Surveillance of a nodule of this size, however, is frequently recommended, particularly if you have a smoking history. Please sure to talk to your doctor for the appropriate steps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Chest CT scan subsegmental atelectasis versus fibrosis in medial margins of r \l upper lobes abutting mediastinum was f/u for 6mm ground glass nodule
The fibrosis and : Atelectasis isnt anything to worry about, just some lung tissue collapsed on itself and scarring. The ground glass nodule is something that may need longer term follow up to make sure it doesnt grow. These can be due to something called atypical adenomatous hyperplasia (aah). ...Read more
A very faint subpleural nodular density in the left lower lobe posterolaterally noted on CT Scan along with minor nodularity to posterior lung bases?
Questionable small density at the left upper lung field and linear atelectasis is superimposed on the left hilum.What? Cancer? Remainder lungs clear.
Possible: The possibility of cancer is almost always there. The risk depends on the smoking history, family history of cancer, the size of the mass, etc.. Smokers are at higher risk. Certain cancers are familial. Larger spots and those with ragged edges are more likely to be cancerous. Consultation with oncologist or lung specialist may be considered.. ...Read more
Xray report diffuse reticular shadowing throughout both lungs with reduced lung volumes also the right side No large pleural effusion or pneumothorax.
The radiologist is: not sure what to make of this small nodule. If it was to be calcified then it would be one thing. For example an old residual of infection. This is not calcified. This opens up many other possibilities. An old infection is still a consideration. It depends on where it is in the lung, how many and do you have an old study. It may be worthwhile waiting a short period and repeat the ct to check it ...Read more
My husband has some minor linear atelectasis in the left lingula with slight dependant atelectasis at the lung base also mild right hilar lymphadenop?
Needs evaluation: The presence of linear opacities with hilar adenopathy can be due to several acute or chronic conditions such as histoplasmosis, atypical mycobacterial infections, sarcoidosis, or rarely malignancy etc. Your husband should immediately see a lung specialist for a complete evaluation to determine the underlying cause, which will help determine appropriate course of treatment. ...Read more
What's a 14mm noncalcified left upper lobe parenchymal pulmonary mass adjacent atelectasis.Left upper lobe bronchus/hillar peribronchial cuffing/thick?
Mgt PHI: The imaging may be uploaded to an inbox consultation. From your description I would suggest a follow up imaging study with an evaluation with additional information. Have you smoked? Is there a family history of cancer? Have you been tested for any infections? The mass is probably impinging on the airway and causing areas of collapse, called atelectasis. This area is prone to secondary infection ...Read more
A CT finding of a, stellate 1.6 x 1.1 CM subpleural right anterior segment upper lobe nodule is present. Additional 2mm middle lobe nodule is cancer?
Could Be: The right upper lobe nodule sounds most suspicious and may require some sort of biopsy to be sure. Comparison with any older imaging studies might add more information. The 2mm nodule is too small to assess and would likely be put under surveillance. Hope things work out for the best. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Noncalcified pulmonary nodules a 6mm in left upper lobe, a 5mm right middle lobe , a4mm in lingula 7mm lateral r mid lobe should I worry?
Pulmonary nodules: It would be nice to know as what are bronchoscopic finding, cell cytology and fungal studies reports? You have four small non calcified nodules ranging4mm to7 mm. You are 37. Any smoking history or cancer? Please stick to your pulmonary doctor who knows you well, and follow the advice. Thanks. ...Read more
Chest XRay - Latetal view demonstrates blunting of both costophrenic angles w/either small lung base pleural effusions are chronic pleural thickening.
If you have: previous chest X-rays to compare, that would be helpful in making the determination between mild pleural thickening(scarring) or effusion(fluid). There are numerous potential etiologies for each. Further imaging could include ultrasound, special chest xray views(decubitus views ), or CT scan. ...Read more
Ct chest adrenal nodule 1.9 CM right. Lungs demonstrate babisalar dependent atelectasis small subpleural bullae noted right up lobe trace pericardial?
Adrenal eval: Hi. The adrenal nodule needs to be evaluated. What were the Hounsfield units on the non-contrast scan of the nodule? Your endocrinologist will determine: 1) if it's producing any hormones, and 2) if it's growing. If high Hounsfield units, it needs sooner evaluation. Any hirsutism, amenorrhea, diabetes, serious high blood pressure, sweating, headache, palpitations, etc? Good luck! ...Read more
29/f bilateral anterior upper lobe groundglass opacities and small right pulmonary nodules up to 5mm. Smoker and svt. Seriousness? Next steps? What is
Follow with PCP: You need your doctor to guide you. Any opacities in lungs need to be further investigated as to the cause. Lung nodules may or may not be related. But they should be monitored for further growth or change using a repeat ct scan 4-6 weeks after the last one. If you have any fever then you need to be tested sooner than later. ...Read more
