Probable biopsy: A spiculated mass is often worrisome for cancer. However this also could be from a prior lung infection. Your doctors may consider a needle biopsy of the mass or a pet/ct scan.

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

(36 and smoker)What could 3 noncalcified lung nodules sizes 6mm- 4mm left lower lobe be? Found on ct, what would be next step to identify cause?
Many possibilities.: Noncalcified lung nodules are worrisome, especially if you are a smoker (as you have), & more so if you are a "heavy" smoker (based on number of packs per day, & no of yrs that you've smoked). A nodule could be scar tissue, or the effects of an infection or radiation; however, most worrisome, of course, is lung cancer. To identify cause, next step is usually bronchoscopy (scope to look) & biopsy. ...Read more

Bronchiectasis: Bronchiectasis is a result of lung tissue destruction. Lung excercise might help but you would need to see a lung specialist to find out the etiology of your problem. Treating the underlying disease would prevent further lung destruction or worsening bronchiectasis and improve your lung function. Many things can present that way. Both allergist and pulmonilogist are well versed in this condition. ...Read more

I have a 4mm nodule in my right lower lung lobe. Doctors suspect its benign. Risk outweighs benefits to aspirate it out.Do nodules hurt? I feel pain
No: The short answer is no, lung nodules are in areas of the body which do not have pain receptors. A nodule that involves the pleura (lining or edge) of the lung might present with pain if large enough and if it grows through the parietal pleura (lining of the chest wall) but a 4mm lung nodule would not be painful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
