Lung Scar Due To Primary Complex
Does every Primary Complex diagnosis cause scars on the lungs? Is this lifetime or any lung scar can clear up?
Primary complex: Not every primary complex leaves a lung scar seen on X-Ray. It usually takes some calcification or growth of granulation tissue to be seen. Some of them heal completely without Leaving any trace. ...Read more
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

Can benign nodules and many calcified granulomas [seen on my new ct] create obstruction in airways and cause lung portions to collapse, ?
Unlikely: Benign pulmonary granulomas are an extremely common finding on ct of the chest, and almost never cause symptoms. A granuloma should never cause an airway obstruction.

Could metabolic activty from early small cell lung cancer cause vitamin deficincies (B12,D, Zinc, follate)? &Would this earlry tumor show on CT?
No; but poor diet ca: Vitamin deficiencies (more than 1) like those of which you speak come from a poor diet that often includes alcohol or cigarettes. All of those can, in turn, cause small cell lung cancer but not necessarily.

When a person has chronic high blood pressure which anesthesia is best spinal or general put to sleep fully to remove complex ovarian cyst?
Spinal; see anesthes: I'm not an anesthesiologist, so the best person to talk to is whoever will be on duty on the day you are supposed to have the surgery. But, to my knowledge, "being put to sleep" (general anesthesia with a gas) RAISES your blood pressure, while spinal anesthesia can potentially lower it (for the duration of surgery). Best to get it controlled before surgery, though. TTYD or use HT Prime for how to. ...Read more
Can middle chest pain when pressed be due to anything pertaining vascular disorder due to connective tissue disease?
My chest xray showed--right upper midzonal
consolidation is seen with a fibrotic element.Is it TB scar? Could it cause lung cancer. Doctor please answer.
Abnormal Xray: I cannot say without seeing the xray. However, "fibrotic" implies scarring. If you have history of tb, it can be from that, or any prior infection. Would not hurt to keep an eye on it, as TB can recur. Tb does not cause lung cancer, nor does scarring. If the scarring is from smoking however, that does cause cancer without doubt! if you do smoke, at your age you have time to heal if you quit. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
