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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
I have just been diagnosed with a Lung Nodule. It is in Right lung btween upper two lobes. My father died from Squamous Cell. Should it be watched 6 m?
Lung nodules: are very common and fortunately most of the time are benign. Some need to be watched and other do not. Certain characteristics such as the size, morphology and your smoking history dictate the necessity and timing of follow up imaging studies. More information is needed to properly answer your question :) ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
CT-scan report of 2 noncalcified nodules in the upper lobe of my right lung. Should I still be cleared to have arthroscopic knee surgery next wk?
Probably : These are chronic, and shouldn't cause cancellation of your knee surgery. They do need to be followed, or compared to old X-rays if available to ensure stability. May also need a ct scan at some point. Ask your primary care to follow up with this and recommend a course of action after your knee is fixed. Hope this helps! And good luck with the operation! ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Lung CT. Several pleural tags bilateral upper lobes. 7mm nodule peripheral right lower lobe. What are causes for pleural tags not related to nodule?
Pleural bassed nodule at posterior aspect os mid cephalad right lower lobe of lung 7 x 4 mm. Also linear atelectasis within right midlung. Age 73?
Future evaluation: Nodules can be very common in the chest. A lot of the decision of what to do with your nodule depends on your smoking history. If you have never smoked then the likelihood that this represents an early cancer is low. There is a national guideline in the United States for repeating a series of ct scans to ensure that the nodule does not grow. Your doctor will plan this out with you. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Two lung nodules upper right lobe 5 and 2 one nodule lower left lobe 3 mm. All uncalcified. Colonoscopy endoscopy brain MRI normal. What are theseim26?
R u smoker?: The absolute diagnosis of pulmonary nodules is done by a pathologist under microscopic examination. Otherwise speculative. Cat scan or pet scans are not microscopic examinations by a pathologist. If nodules become calcified most likely grannulomas. Carcinomas and grannulomas look alike early on. Close periodic f/u versus early excissional bx advised. Needle bx not DX unless cancer diagnosed. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
I had breast cancer a year ago and had a right mastecnomy. Now they have found pleural nodules in right and left lower lobes 5mm, 4, 8mm, 2, 4mm, 4.5mm should I be worried about lung cancer.?
While these are: Quite tiny, this appears ominous. It would help to know the facts at dx: tumor size, nodal status; er, pr, her-2-neu status. These would influence probabilities. Some treatment, particularly taxanes, can cause pulmonary findings. Go over this with you team, primarily medical oncologist. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
