What does it indicate if a thyroid ultrasound showed nodules on my lungs? Symptoms include crackling sounds when i lay down?
Confusion????: A thyroid ultrasound doesn't show anything on the lungs. Only a chest xray or ct scan shows the lungs.

Unfortunately, no: Lung cancers are often diagnosed quite late because patients may not have symptoms for a long time. Eventually, people will have a cough, cough up blood, lose weight, have chest pain or shortness of breath. If a nodule is benign, the presence of symptoms probably depends on the exact location (whether it blocks an airway, for example). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No symptoms: Lung nodules have no symptoms, unfortunately. Most of the time, they are benign things like scars, but sometimes they can be early cancers.

There is a large list of symptoms with sarcoid. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pls advice me what symptoms a lung nodule would normally cause?Mine is 8mm, unrelated to dilated bronchi, would it increase in size if its not cancer?
Ct chest scan showed several small 2 mm noncalcified but stable pulmonary nodules in both lungs.Should i be concerned. What symptoms could this cause?
Probably not: 2mm nodules are quite small. If these nodules have not grown(monitored by ct) over significant period of time (months), the likelihood of malignancy is small. These are probably granulomas or scar tissue secondary to previous infection. ...Read more
