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
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.

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

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
