Nodule On Lungs From Scar Tissue And Pleural Effusion
Have lung nodules that are growing &massive chest pain (heart is fine) could this be a pleural effusion? Should I be worried? Worse when I breathe deeply
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
Minimal atelectatic medically rt middle lobe and lingular area on lt with multiple small nodules with subpleural density and pleural-based no pleural effusion or pneumothorax what does this mean?
First you will need a diagnosis of what these nodules are. The atelectases in both lungs should be evaluated by looking at the airways to make sure there is no nodule in the airways causing collapse and in addition the bronchoscopy may just give all the diagnosis.
Good luck. ...Read more

I have been told I have pleural effusion, caused by a lung infection, but I am on holiday can it wait til I get home to get treated?
It would be unwise: To wait as potentially there could be a rapid progression of both fluid production and spread of infection. It could be so rapid that you would die before appropriate management could even be initiated. You might be sad about missing holiday this year but at least you will be alive to have a holiday next year. ...Read more

Left sided pleural effusion diagnosed as TB. After 4 month treatment feel a pull in left lung when I sneeze yawn cough or take a deep long breath.
Pleural effusion: The effusion may not have fully cleared yet but the most likely feeling is some scar tissue has formed and attached some of the lung to the chest wall. The lung itself has no pain fibers but the lining of the chest wall does and this could cause the feeling you have. You need to follow up with your MD and get a repeat chest X-Ray. ...Read more

I am guessing that if an elderly person (not me) has COPD & a pleural effusion (even if the person doesn't have a lung infection) then this would make it harder to survive sepsis. But if so, would either be likely to make a significant difference?
COPD is diagnosis.: The pleural effusion is a SIGN or a symptom, not a "condition". In fact, by draining the effusion, doctors can run tests & perhaps figure out what is causing the problem. But it doesn't portend anything with regards to survival unless it becomes large. COPD is a DIAGNOSIS. It means that the lungs don't function properly. It makes surviving sepsis tougher, as lung problems can easily develop. TTYD. ...Read more

Can to you have a slight injury to the chest and still get a pleural effusion or pulmonary edema?
Not really: What is your definition of slight injury? If we are talking trauma, like a blow to the chest, then you would more likely see a pulmonary contusion or maybe a lung collapse than effusion or edema. Those two things describe fluid around the lung (effusion) or waterlogged lung tissue, like a sponge in the case of edema. The mechanisms for these are not usually related to trauma or injury per se ...Read more
Fluid around lungs has many causes. It can be exudate (thick i.E pus from infection, malignancy etc) or transudative (heart failure). It may be treated based on the problem found by sampling (thoracentesis). Labs on the fluid help the clinician determine the etiology. For recurring pleural fluid, sometime pleuradesis is necessary to hep prevent recurrance. Need ...Read more
