2mm lung nodule lower left lobe - unrelated CT found it - on 1yr fu it's now 4mm. Any reason other than cancer it would grow? I just quit smoking.
Benign possibilities: There are many benign causes of a solitary pulmonary nodule. However, with a smoking history, you probably ought to have it biopsied, if possible, or even removed.

Lung nodule 1.4 -2, 7 suv r middle lobe (vats) now or wait 3months for another scan 3 thoracic surgeons said different things?
Depends: Depends on your level of risk (most notably, are you a smoker?) and level of anxiety. Suv is borderline. This may be tumor or infection. If you are or have been a smoker and are not the type that likes to wait, by all means have the surgery. If you are scared by the knife you can wait 3 months, both answers are correct. In my opinion you will end up having the vats at some point. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
