Non Calcified Lung Nodule In Lower Right Lobe
6mm nodule left lung base pleural surface and faint 6mm nodule on left lower sub pleural lobe found from CT. Enlarged heart found on right side. Also very slight alveolitis found in right upper lobe. ?
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
34, non smoker , CT chest scan showd in right lower lobe posterior apical segmnt a probably calicified tiny nodule of non specific origin. Is it cancer?
What's a 14mm noncalcified left upper lobe parenchymal pulmonary mass adjacent atelectasis.Left upper lobe bronchus/hillar peribronchial cuffing/thick?
Mgt PHI: The imaging may be uploaded to an inbox consultation. From your description I would suggest a follow up imaging study with an evaluation with additional information. Have you smoked? Is there a family history of cancer? Have you been tested for any infections? The mass is probably impinging on the airway and causing areas of collapse, called atelectasis. This area is prone to secondary infection ...Read more
A CT finding of a, stellate 1.6 x 1.1 CM subpleural right anterior segment upper lobe nodule is present. Additional 2mm middle lobe nodule is cancer?
Could Be: The right upper lobe nodule sounds most suspicious and may require some sort of biopsy to be sure. Comparison with any older imaging studies might add more information. The 2mm nodule is too small to assess and would likely be put under surveillance. Hope things work out for the best. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Noncalcified pulmonary nodules a 6mm in left upper lobe, a 5mm right middle lobe , a4mm in lingula 7mm lateral r mid lobe should I worry?
Pulmonary nodules: It would be nice to know as what are bronchoscopic finding, cell cytology and fungal studies reports? You have four small non calcified nodules ranging4mm to7 mm. You are 37. Any smoking history or cancer? Please stick to your pulmonary doctor who knows you well, and follow the advice. Thanks. ...Read more
Two lung nodules upper right lobe 5 and 2 one nodule lower left lobe 3 mm. All uncalcified. Colonoscopy endoscopy brain MRI normal. What are theseim26?
R u smoker?: The absolute diagnosis of pulmonary nodules is done by a pathologist under microscopic examination. Otherwise speculative. Cat scan or pet scans are not microscopic examinations by a pathologist. If nodules become calcified most likely grannulomas. Carcinomas and grannulomas look alike early on. Close periodic f/u versus early excissional bx advised. Needle bx not DX unless cancer diagnosed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bibasilar sub CM pulmonary nodules noted on CT scan.Sclerotic focus in right and left iliac,0.4cm and 0.5cm.1.7cm complex right ovarian cyst.Concerns?
Prob. not.: All those items seems relatively benign, ie, not important. If it associated with abnormal labwork, or significant symptoms, then a PET scan may be more useful to identify active disease. If this is the first time the lung nodules have been seen, then a follow up CT in 3-4 months would be recommended. ...Read more
Small subpleural nodules in right upper lobe.Mild aread of fibrosis in bilateral apices.Mild mediastinal lymphadenopathy.Enlarged carinal lymph node.?
Unknown: Complete history, exposures, symptoms, etc... Would be critical. Subcarinal nodes could be sampled. In addition, depending on radiographic appearance and interpretation, could have lung biopsies as well. But, potential diagnosis is fairly large, numerous possibilities. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The radiologist is: not sure what to make of this small nodule. If it was to be calcified then it would be one thing. For example an old residual of infection. This is not calcified. This opens up many other possibilities. An old infection is still a consideration. It depends on where it is in the lung, how many and do you have an old study. It may be worthwhile waiting a short period and repeat the ct to check it ...Read more
A very faint subpleural nodular density in the left lower lobe posterolaterally noted on CT Scan along with minor nodularity to posterior lung bases?
Finally got my CT scan report. It says calcified left hilar lymph nodes and calcified left lower lobe granuloma. History of oral cancer. Benign?
"Granuloma": The airways are a common portal of entry of organisms that can cause an inflammatory reaction we call granulomatous. As these age, they become more scar-like and occasionally will calcify. An infectious site from the lung can sometimes seed lymh nodes in the mediastinum and then calcify as well. While tumors sometimes also calcify the radiologic pattern is usually different. So good news 4u ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Watch/retest: Unless you have a thyroid cancer history, the nodule is suspicious on ultrasound or other factors are in play -- check serum thyroglobulin and thyroid function. Repeat doctor's exam an ultrasound in a year. Generally of very low significance and found in over 50% of the population. ...Read more
Chest CT scan subsegmental atelectasis versus fibrosis in medial margins of r \l upper lobes abutting mediastinum was f/u for 6mm ground glass nodule
The fibrosis and : Atelectasis isnt anything to worry about, just some lung tissue collapsed on itself and scarring. The ground glass nodule is something that may need longer term follow up to make sure it doesnt grow. These can be due to something called atypical adenomatous hyperplasia (aah). ...Read more
RAI for graves 30 yrs ago. now US findings: calcified focus in region of left lobe occupying much of the remaining left lobe & is densely calcified?
Good sign.: Complete calcification following RAI means that there is no more active thyroid tissue in the treated area. If the remain heathy tissue keeps your thyroid hormone levels normal (or if you're getting enough replacement hormone), you should be fine. Of course, I'm assuming the pathology report didn't show any signs of thyroid cancer. If you have any further concerns, discuss it with your doctor. ...Read more
Male 30,Chest CT shows 6 mm nodular density in the left upper lobe,minimal bibasilar dependent atelectasis, have shortness of breath,it needs surgery?
My cta listed subcentimeter hypodense thyroid lesions and pulmonary nodules in upper right lobe with largest 8mm. Noncalcified. Should I be worried?
