Multiple Lung Nodules Symptoms
Unfortunately, no: Lung cancers are often diagnosed quite late because patients may not have symptoms for a long time. Eventually, people will have a cough, cough up blood, lose weight, have chest pain or shortness of breath. If a nodule is benign, the presence of symptoms probably depends on the exact location (whether it blocks an airway, for example). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
No symptoms: Lung nodules have no symptoms, unfortunately. Most of the time, they are benign things like scars, but sometimes they can be early cancers.

Pls advice me what symptoms a lung nodule would normally cause?Mine is 8mm, unrelated to dilated bronchi, would it increase in size if its not cancer?
Need more info...: About your symptoms and the imaging. Lung nodules and growth within or next to the submandibular gland raise suspicion for cancer, but need to put all of the data together. Will probably need to have a biopsy to get tissue to examine under the microscope - that will allow an exact diagnosis and plan of treatment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
LungNodules/Pleurisy: Not all lung nodules are cancerous. May need biopsy to be certain. Pleurisy is inflammation of the linings of the lungs which causes chest pain on deep inhalation.
