Nodule In Lower Right Lung Lobe
I have a 4mm nodule in my right lower lung lobe. Doctors suspect its benign. Risk outweighs benefits to aspirate it out.Do nodules hurt? I feel pain
No: The short answer is no, lung nodules are in areas of the body which do not have pain receptors. A nodule that involves the pleura (lining or edge) of the lung might present with pain if large enough and if it grows through the parietal pleura (lining of the chest wall) but a 4mm lung nodule would not be painful. ...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

My husband had a CT scan of his chest 3 times, all the times it showed something but this time it showed an existing nodule in the right lung and a new nodule measuring 4 mm in the right upper lobe. The left lower has hazy markings. My husband is a former
Need evaluation: He would need further evaluation. The fact that he is a former smoker, still gives him significant risk for lung cancer. I dont know the size of the 1st nodule- if possible, a core biopsy should be done to rule out malignancy. A pet scan also needs to be done if not been done in the past- although however, negative finding on the 2nd nodule will not rule out cancer completely due to its size. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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

I have a 4x3mm sub plural nodule lower right lobe w/family history of lung and colon cancer. Should I get further testing?
What were you told?: These little nodules are extremely common especially in areas where histoplasmosis is endemic, like my home in Kansas. If you look hard enough, probably a majority of folks have them. Unless your radiologist recommends an attempt at a biopsy, I'd forget about it or as maximum monitor it by imaging. There's really no test except biospy; and it's too small to hit easily with a needle. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Questionable right lower lobe lung nodule vs end on vessel a followup x-ray is recomended in 3 month to reassess.No acute anatomic finding. any wrong?
Unclear: The lauded radiologist, whoever it was that issued the report, is uncertain as to whether a nodule was found in the lung, or if there was a confounding shadow from a vessel. That is why he/she recommends a repeat of the exam (X-ray) in 3 months. A malignant nodule would get bigger. A stable appearance suggests a benign anomaly or artifact. Without seeing the actual film, nothing more can be said. ...Read more
