Lung (Definition)

NEED MORE INFORMATIO: May be or may be not. Depends on the diagnosis of cause of spasm in 2010. How was the spasm in 2010 resolved? What did the doctor say in 2010 as the cause of spasm? Any x-ray done in 2010 or now? Any injury in 2010 or now? What is the status of lung cancer now -any surgery, any metastases. Where is the exact location of lung cancer - right or left, upper, middle or lower fields? ...Read more

Would an abdominal or lung CT show back problems? Been having terrible back spasms lately and wondering if it would have picked up  a tumor back there

See below: Chances are your symptom is not from a spine tumor. Check with your doctor for treatment. The thoracic spine is included in the chest ct & the lumbar spine is included in abdominal ct. An obvious mass destroying the spine would have been seen on ct. A lesion the spinal cord may not be visible. ...Read more

See your physician. ...Read more
