Non Calcified Lung Nodulars Lung Carcinoma
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
Generally no worries: These are likely "healed" TB or fungal infection that the body has "walled off" and calcified. Usually called calcified granulomas. Very common, especially in certain parts of the world where specific fungi are endemic in the environment - in those areas, nearly every one has them and they do no harm. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
See details: Please ask this question to the doctor who ordered the tests. That doctor is the only one who can put this result in context for you. The reading, unfortunately, suggests the underlying cause is a malignancy. However, there are other possible causes. That is why your own doctor will be the best one to provide an answer. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Needs biospy: Small nodules can be cancer, but they would need to be biopsied. Many times, the nodules are just scars and not cancer. If you find nodules on a cat scan of your chest, depending on the size, they need to be followed to make sure they don't grow or look ominous enough to warrant a biopsy. What to do about nodules also depends on your risk for lung cancer, i.e., were/are you a smoker, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Let's not jump into: The worst conclusions. Your are 30 y/o, nonsmoker. If you look at the study, 1994, univ of miami, people who developed lung cancer under age 36 were mainly exposed to marijuana, inconclusive but something to think about. In all likelihood this is part of your rheum problem such as rheumatoid nodules or infectious such as fungal. You need a bronch/biopsy for dx. I wish you luck, keep spirits up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends on stage: The long term prognosis of lung cancer depends on the stage of the cancer. The stage (1-4) depends on the size of the tumor and whether it has spread outside of the lung to lymph nodes, the lining of the chest wall (pleura) or other organs (liver, brain, etc). Some of this information may be determined by x ray test (ct scan, pet scan) and some may require biopsies to determine. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Several posibilities: Often this may be due to infections like histoplasmosis (which is quite frequent in the mid-west), but the best thing to do is to have this thoroughly evaluated by a pulmonary (lung) expert. It may require bronchoscopy after appropriate imaging studies, and possibly other procedures, but the importance of establishing a firm diagnosis cannot be over-estimated. Good luck. ...Read more
Many rt. Paratracheal/mediastinal, bilateral hilar nodes consistent w/metastasis. Right subcarinal metastatic node mass 3cm. Max suv 9.1. Lung cancer?
Needs Biopsy: Is there a known primary cancer? If not, you will need a biopsy of one of the nodes. Your doctor may suggest a mediastinoscopy and biopsy to get a tissue specimen. There are other causes of mediastinal node enlargement such as infection and sarcoidosis so it is important to make a definite diagnosis. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Ct angiogram shows non calcified opacity on middle lobe 4mm. Appearance of benign intrapulmonary lymph node on lung with no pleural abnormalites.
Opacity: The question to your doctor should be - is this an incidental pulmonary nodule or something more concerning. If the ct angio was done for something completely unrelated, and it was a true incidental finding, some guidelines say that under a certain size (4mm) for low risk patients (no smoking, etc), then no follow up is needed. Otherwise a biopsy or interval imaging followup is appropriate. ...Read more
Yes: But there are very few truly benign solid tumors that occur in the lung. The only type seen with any frequency are hamartomas. Lung nodules that are made of scar do not generally grow except when they form, granulomas are burnt out infections that also don't grow. Any solid lung nodule that is increasing in size needs to be proven not to be cancer with biopsy ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Unclear question: Examination of the tissue by a pathologist is the gold standard for diagnosis. However, an apical cavitary lesion in the lung should be treated as tuberculosis, unless proven otherwise. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Non small cell lung cancer stage 111a. Had lobectomy but cancer remains in chest wall and lymph node. What is life expectancy without treatment?
Variable outcomes: It is not entirely clear whether your cancer is truly stage-3A ( it means completely resected, no residual cancer left behind). If there is indeed some tumor left behind in the chest wall, then there is high risk of recurrence which will likely cause you problems within 6 to 12 months. This can be controlled with radiotherapy combined with chemotherapy. So you should reconsider your decision . ...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
