Calcified lung nodules?

Generally no worries: These are likely "healed" TB or fungal infection that the body has "walled off" and calcified. Usually called calcified granulomas. Very common, especially in certain parts of the world where specific fungi are endemic in the environment - in those areas, nearly every one has them and they do no harm. ...Read more

Adrenal eval: Hi. The adrenal nodule needs to be evaluated. What were the Hounsfield units on the non-contrast scan of the nodule? Your endocrinologist will determine: 1) if it's producing any hormones, and 2) if it's growing. If high Hounsfield units, it needs sooner evaluation. Any hirsutism, amenorrhea, diabetes, serious high blood pressure, sweating, headache, palpitations, etc? Good luck! ...Read more

Lung CT scan impression: multiple small nodules largest 6mm ill-defined semisolid noncalcified medial left upper lobe ?

Lung Nodules:: It is fairly common for people to have benign lung nodules that are incidentally found on ct scans.

Check back with your physician for a follow-up plan. ...Read more

Are small lung nodules cancer?

Are small lung nodules cancer?

Needs biospy: Small nodules can be cancer, but they would need to be biopsied. Many times, the nodules are just scars and not cancer. If you find nodules on a cat scan of your chest, depending on the size, they need to be followed to make sure they don't grow or look ominous enough to warrant a biopsy. What to do about nodules also depends on your risk for lung cancer, i.e., were/are you a smoker, etc. ...Read more

Enlarged hilar lymph node, bilateral ant groundglass opacities, rt pulm nodules, elevated ana, fam hist. Odds of lung cancer/metasticzd fromelsewhere?

Let's not jump into: The worst conclusions. Your are 30 y/o, nonsmoker. If you look at the study, 1994, univ of miami, people who developed lung cancer under age 36 were mainly exposed to marijuana, inconclusive but something to think about. In all likelihood this is part of your rheum problem such as rheumatoid nodules or infectious such as fungal. You need a bronch/biopsy for dx. I wish you luck, keep spirits up. ...Read more

Severe chest pain, calcium screening showed chronic pulmonary hypertension& lung nodules. Had CT of chest 3mm & 8mm noncalcified granulomas.helpplease?

Lung nodules: many causes of lung granulomas. Histoplasmosis a fungus in the dirt is probably most common cause. Being around construction sites or bird handling are frequent causes especially around Ohio river. Connective tissue causes like sarcoidosis and wegeners can also cause. Working in dusty areas or around talc is known cause. With pulmonary hypertension you need to see a pulmonologist for definitive dx ...Read more

Ct angiogram shows non calcified opacity on middle lobe 4mm. Appearance of benign intrapulmonary lymph node on lung with no pleural abnormalites.

Ct angiogram shows non calcified opacity on middle lobe 4mm. Appearance of benign intrapulmonary lymph node on lung with no pleural abnormalites.

Opacity: The question to your doctor should be - is this an incidental pulmonary nodule or something more concerning. If the ct angio was done for something completely unrelated, and it was a true incidental finding, some guidelines say that under a certain size (4mm) for low risk patients (no smoking, etc), then no follow up is needed. Otherwise a biopsy or interval imaging followup is appropriate. ...Read more

Chest X-ray Hyperinflamed lung and perihilar bronchitis changes are seen.No acute pulmonary or pleural disease.25 year,non smoker,Please explain findi?

Might be normal: I obviously have to make some assumptions without seeing the films myself. First, I believe that "hyperinflated" was meant instead of hyperinflamed, as it is a more common term. It is used often when lungs appear over expanded.Although it sometimes suggests air trapping seen in asthma, or copd... It tends to be overused...and is often seen in normal people who are able to take a very Deep breath ...Read more
