Doctor insights on: Medicine For Suspicious Densities In The Upper Left Lungs

Share

Lung (Definition)

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

What does suspicious densities is seen in the right upper lobe and left mid lung means? Is it seious or not? Pls answer.

I assume: You are referring to a chest xray? "Suspicous densities" is not very specific, but it sounds like you have abnormal findings (e.g. mass, nodule, infiltrate, scarring) that might require further evaluation with a CT scan or other tests. Talk to your doc about what the results mean. No way to tell based on limited info how serious it might be. Take care. ...Read more

My chedt xray diagnosis is: minimum equivocal densities are suggested in the lateral midfield left lung. What does this mean?

Unknown: The national tree of radiology is the "hedge".
This means when we see the word "equivocal" we as dr's are at a loss as to what the x-ray shows. A discussion with your dr as to travel history, living situation, work, and a lot of other facts must be explored. ...Read more

Questionable small density at the left upper lung field and linear atelectasis is superimposed on the left hilum. What? Cancer? Remainder lungs clear.

Questionable small density at the left upper lung field and linear atelectasis is superimposed on the left hilum. What? Cancer? Remainder lungs clear.

Possible: The possibility of cancer is almost always there. The risk depends on the smoking history, family history of cancer, the size of the mass, etc. Smokers are at higher risk. Certain cancers are familial. Larger spots and those with ragged edges are more likely to be cancerous. Consultation with oncologist or lung specialist may be considered.. ...Read more

My 16 yr nephew is possesing water in his left lung it is assumed it should be drained out but is it compulsory to drain? Can medicine do the same job

My 16 yr nephew is possesing water in his left lung it is assumed it should be drained out but is it compulsory to drain? Can medicine do the same job

Depends. . .: Whether medicine can drain water from lungs depends upon condition. Diuretic or water pill can treat heart failure due to pulmonary edema but thoracentesis is required to treat pleural effusion. Small effusions may be monitored but if it's large enough to affect his breathing, then it should be drained. Obtaining a sample of fluid will also help explain why it developed so it can be treated. ...Read more

I have a lymph node at left lung...What is the best, I have no money, what is the best herbal medicine for this case?

Herbal medicine?: No. I'm not sure you need any medicine whatsoever for a lymph node in your lung. We all have lymph nodes in our chest. Some bigger than others. There is a lot of missing info here, like how was it found and what prompted them to look on the first place. There is no specific treatment needed for just a lymph node, and if there was, it would not have anything to do with "herbal medicine". ...Read more

What's it mean if CT scan says I have a 4 mm nodular density in lower left lung postero-laterally? In 2012 it was at 3mm now in 2015 it was 4mm

What's it mean if CT scan says I have a 4 mm nodular density in lower left lung postero-laterally? In 2012 it was at 3mm now in 2015 it was 4mm

Depending on how: The scans were performed, they may or may not be reliably comparable when measuring tiny nodules. Additionally, studies show significant intra-observer variability when measuring small nodules. So the first order of business is having one person look at both scans and determine if the size has really changed. If yes, further workup might be needed. If no, then probably nothing needs to be ddone ...Read more

Hello I have been diagnosed with a small module on my left lower lung. A low density lesion on my liver and a 6mm nodule on my right thyroid lobe.?

See below: Such multiple findings as you describe are not uncommon on various imaging studies such as CT scans of the chest, abdomen, pelvis that include the thyroid, lung, liver, and kidneys where small sub-centimeter (<10 mm) nodules are commonly noted which are most often benign and clinically insignificant but which often deserve a follow-up study in 6-12 months. You should discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more

Do they give a size: For the "subpleural nodular density"? There are a litany of potential causes, from chronic to acute, from inflammatory to neoplastic, from no concern to worrisome. More specific info on the nodule and any relevant clinical history would help narrow it down. ...Read more
