Nodule On Diaphragm
Ct found 2 nodules in diaphragm , wants me to follow up in 3 months, is this normal and why would this have been spotted in my abdominal ct not chest ?
In or under?: Were the nodules IN the diaphragm (the muscle) or underneath it? Were they near the liver, by chance (which sits underneath the diaphragm)? Without seeing pictures, it's hard to say, but either the nodules were missed on the chest CT or they were in a lower position, where the CT of the chest did not reach. The diaphragm is the border between the chest and the abdomen. ...Read more
It is concerning.: While I'm unable to state anything with any degree of certainty based on hat description, we generally do not like to see individuals with diffuse lung and liver nodules or lesions.

My biopsied nodule was deemed cancerous. The cancer m.D. Was perplexed that the nodule shrunk. I chose the wait and see choice. Was that wise?
Cancer shrunk: If this was a small skin cancer it might be a reasonable choice. Some basal cell cancers shrink when biopsied as the patient's immune system seems to pick them up and starts trying to destroy the remaining disease. This is the riskier choice in this case as the cancer might return, but they do not all return.
