Lung Nodule 7mm
Nodules- thyroid us:Superior hypoechoic vascular nodule 7x6x5 mm.Mid lobe hypoechoic nodule 3x4x2 mm. Sup vascular nodule measuring 10x8x5. Worries?
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
Thyroid u/s: 3x2x3mm cystic nodule, ill-defined 1.6x0.8x1.0cm hypoechoic nodule r lobe; 6x3x6mm solid, slightly hypoechoic nodule l lobe- next step?
Followup exam: By age 60, about one-half of all people have a thyroid nodule, found either through examination or with imaging. Over 90% of such nodules are benign. Hypoechoic noodules are usually cysts. A complex nodule over one cm. With blood flow should be biopsied. This can be performed by neeedle or core bx. Most nodules are asymptomatic. Follow up us examination in six months suggested. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Enlarged hilar lymph node, bilateral ant groundglass opacities, rt pulm nodules, elevated ana, fam hist. Odds of lung cancer/metasticzd fromelsewhere?
Let's not jump into: The worst conclusions. Your are 30 y/o, nonsmoker. If you look at the study, 1994, univ of miami, people who developed lung cancer under age 36 were mainly exposed to marijuana, inconclusive but something to think about. In all likelihood this is part of your rheum problem such as rheumatoid nodules or infectious such as fungal. You need a bronch/biopsy for dx. I wish you luck, keep spirits up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Generally no worries: These are likely "healed" TB or fungal infection that the body has "walled off" and calcified. Usually called calcified granulomas. Very common, especially in certain parts of the world where specific fungi are endemic in the environment - in those areas, nearly every one has them and they do no harm. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Severe chest pain, calcium screening showed chronic pulmonary hypertension& lung nodules. Had CT of chest 3mm & 8mm noncalcified granulomas.helpplease?
Lung nodules: many causes of lung granulomas. Histoplasmosis a fungus in the dirt is probably most common cause. Being around construction sites or bird handling are frequent causes especially around Ohio river. Connective tissue causes like sarcoidosis and wegeners can also cause. Working in dusty areas or around talc is known cause. With pulmonary hypertension you need to see a pulmonologist for definitive dx ...Read more
Lung CT scan impression: multiple small nodules largest 6mm ill-defined semisolid noncalcified medial left upper lobe ?
Lung Nodules:: It is fairly common for people to have benign lung nodules that are incidentally found on ct scans. Would recommend a follow-up scan in a few months just to make sure they are not growing. If you smoke, please stop! but, i wouldn't be too worried about these small lung nodules. Check back with your physician for a follow-up plan. ...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

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

Thyroid ultrasound1.4x1.1x1.1cm rim calcified nodule left mid thyroid.Well circumscribe hypoechoic1.4x1.9x1cm nodule w/mild internal flow.Is it cancer?
Let's find out: This may be nothing but a colloid nodule in a developing nodular goiter. If the radiologist can't rule out cancer, you may be getting a fine-needle aspiration. With this pattern of calcification, it's unlikely to be an aggressive tumor even if it is cancer. ...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 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
Nodules: Usually smaller is better. So in this regard, 9mm (0.9cm) is better than 12mm (1.2cm). However, if we're talking about cancer then another important factor is how aggressive the cancer cells are, i.e., how fast they grow/spread. And this you can't tell by size alone but need to look at cells under a microscope and also evaluate for any other nodules or masses. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A 5x5x5mm nodule right upper thyroid no internal flow.Well circumscribed hypoechoic /heterogeneous 1.4x1.4x1.6cm nodule post right.Is the cancerous?
Many possibilities: This is a "spot" in the lung where there's a concentration of solid tissue. The spot may represent a focus of past or present immune activity against a particular germ such as TB or histoplasmosis, or a growth of some type. Most turn out to be harmless, but listen carefully to your doctor(s) re the best and safest way to evaluate the nodule. ...Read more
Thyroid found to be slightly heterogeneous on ultrasound. Isoechoic nodule measuring 7mm mid left lobe. Fam history of thyroid cancer. Concerning?
Not concerning.: Isoechoic thyroid nodules are generally not concerning especially when they are less than 1.5 cm and if they don't have suspicious features like microcalcifications and increased internal vascularity. I recommend repeat thyroid US in 1 year. Make sure you have got your TSH and Free T4 checked. ...Read more
