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 more

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

I have a 4mm lung nodule on my right lung 2 on my left could it be cancer?

Maybe....: ...maybe not. If they are all less than 5-6 mm, there is usually not a whole lot to do other than observation and follow up. PET scans are usually not too sensitive for very tiny nodules. I would defer, however, to the judgement of your physician who knows your situation better and can determine if there is anything else to do now. If you smoke, please stop. Best to you. ...Read more

What does it mean when a 1cm lung nodule has "small density" , does that point toward Cancer? or Benign?

Small density.: A 1 cm nodule is a small density. Most likely this is benign finding but additional info about appearance and history/ physical exam are important. Are you a smoker? What prompted the X-ray or CT? A 3 month follow-up film is likely needed if this is a new radiological finding. Talk to your doctor. Best wishes. ...Read more

Lung (Definition)

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
