Mass Between Lungs And Spine

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

2 to 2.5 inches.: The word "mass" is typically used to describe a solid growth. One that is 6 cm would measure approximately 2 to 2.5 inches in size.

Not usually: Pneumonia itself does not usually appear as a mass on an xray.

Ask pulmonologist: A lung mass is always of concern. Sometimes it can be determined to be benign simply by comparing xrays or CT scans over time. Often it must be biopsied. If possible, this is done through a scope passed down the windpipe. Sometimes that won't reach and biopsy must be done through the chest wall, guided by CT scan. In special cases biopsy is done with a scope through the chest wall or surgically. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Chest ex ray says lungs show increased interstitial markings with no active infiltrate,mass or effusion. What does that mean ?
Depends on context: The interstitium of the lung refers to the area in and around the blood vessels and alveoli (air sacs). This is where the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide takes place. Inflammation and scarring of the interstitium disrupts this tissues. So the radiologist is noting that there appears to be increased markings in the area. There are many different conditions and disease that cause this pattern. ...Read more
