Non Calcified Lung Nodule
9mm non calcified lung nodule... Had MRI said to be hematoma .. But it's slow growing also stated...Couldn't it be carcinoid?
Many things: Could be many things including carcinoid, cancer, arterio-venous malformation and many more. You need close follow-up and perhaps a pet scan when it gets big enough. If it continues growing, sometimes the best thing is to just take it out. Talk to your doctors! good luck! ...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

Way are common causes of multiple small non calcified lung nodules in both lungs that has remained same size in 4 months besides cancer?
X-ray picked up 4mm lung nodule, possibly calcified. Could it be larger and the rest not visible on an X-ray due to non-calcification?
Very common finding: Here in kansas city, most of us have one of more of these little nodules from having met and contained histoplasmosis. They're nothing to worry about. A lesion wasn't missed because it wasn't calcified -- i've watched radiologists at work and you can trust them. There are lesions that are so unlikely to be cancer they're best left alone. Unless your physician tells you otherwise, just watch it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Lung nodule found 11/2013 docs say it begnin & it is to small to biopsy. It had calcification no signs show its Ca but still worried. Severe anxiety?
Lung nodule: If your nodule is less than 1cm especially less than 0.5 cm, has a regular border, it's solid and pop-corn like then no reason to worry, so another thing that your doctor could do if to repeat your imagining at 6-12 months base on your risk factors. Try to relax and repeat a CT scan around Novemebr or so if your nodule was 6-8 mm and you are non-smoker. If you are smoker repeat it now. ...Read more
1 year ago 1 lung nodule 2mm 1year later same nodule 4.5 mm and new one a non calcified punctate at 2.7mm, tiny axillary node should I be worried?
Get it checked,,: At this point , it's hard to say what this is but it must be checked out and followed more closely. It is very important to discuss this with your doctor, run more tests, like a possible biopsy, and initiate the most appropriate treatment because it's clear that it is progressing. Best of luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Worried about a solid lung nodule 4 mm in 2009 and is now 7 mm, non calcified, smooth borders. Rad said it looks like benign soft tissue, possible granuloma. Do non calcified granulomas grow, and could a cancer grow at that growth rate?
Had an MRI of a lung nodule that is non calcified ... Slow growing since 2001... 9mm... Radiologist made diagnoses of it being benign . How can he make such a diagnoses without truly knowing isn't a CT pet scan better to show or even a biopsy?
D/w your MD: It looks like a benign tumor--over 11 years- it grows slowly and the size is only 9mm. If this were a cancer, the growth will be way more rapid than this is. A pet scan has some degree of false negativity when the size is < 10mm. A biopsy is invasive and it's not easy to do when the size is small. Would recommend surveillance only, & quit smoking .If you smoke. (btw, ct scan is better than mri). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Have a 4mm non calcified nodule on lung.I have had 5 CT scans this year on my brain. Would an MRI or ultasound on lung be ok. Worried about radiation?
Unfortunately, no...: The follow up evaluation of a pulmonary nodule as small as 4 mm requires requires extreme precision that is only possible from a repeat study of the same imaging modality (a second chest ct) as we are looking at potential change in size of only a millimeter or two. An ultrasound won't show pulmonary nodules and most chest mri's will not have the resolution to be very useful at this time. ...Read more
