Non Calcified Lung Nodule In Lower Right Lobe
9mm lung nodule found lower lobe on abdomininal scan. Follow up scan 6 months later nodule grew to 1.5 cm. PET scan no uptake former smoker 15 yrs ago?
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
Questionable right lower lobe lung nodule vs end on vessel a followup x-ray is recomended in 3 month to reassess. No acute anatomic finding. Any wrong?
Unclear: The lauded radiologist, whoever it was that issued the report, is uncertain as to whether a nodule was found in the lung, or if there was a confounding shadow from a vessel. That is why he/she recommends a repeat of the exam (X-ray) in 3 months. A malignant nodule would get bigger. A stable appearance suggests a benign anomaly or artifact. Without seeing the actual film, nothing more can be said.
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. This is to be certain that this isn't due to an early malignancy whose removal would likely be curative. Kudos to you for smoking cessation; keep up the good work. Good luck! See a cardiothoracic surgeon for evaluation.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 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.
When my 6mm lung nodule was found on CT, slight "alvelitis" was found on the right upper lobe. What is alvelitis?
Alveolitis: This is inflammation of the Alveoli, ...the pulmonary (lung) alveoli are the terminal ends of the respiratory tree, which outcrop from either alveolar sacs or alveolar ducts, and which are both sites of gas exchange with the blood as well.
Lung nodule 1.4 -2, 7 suv r middle lobe (vats) now or wait 3months for another scan 3 thoracic surgeons said different things?
I have just been diagnosed with a Lung Nodule. It is in Right lung btween upper two lobes. My father died from Squamous Cell. Should it be watched 6 m?
Lung nodules: Are very common and fortunately most of the time are benign. Some need to be watched and other do not. Certain characteristics such as the size, morphology and your smoking history dictate the necessity and timing of follow up imaging studies. More information is needed to properly answer your question :)See 1 more doctor answer
23 yo female. Diagnosed with 4.7 mm non-calcified lung nodule. Faint wheezing in same lung, post nasal drip for months. Could this be cancer?
Met: It would be helpful to see the image during an inbox consult. Is there a history of smoking or a family history of cancer? There are risk factors for lung cancer which can be reviewed. I would also suggest a full physical exam.

See your doctor: None of us can answer this question without looking at the scans and examining you in person. This is best answered by your oncologist and surgeon. I highly recommend that you make an appointment and get evaluated and have a conversation with them. Good luck with everything.See 4 more doctor answers
Yes, but: Calcification of a lung nodule frequently indicates that it is benign in nature. It is the noncalcified nodules that are most concerning for lung cancer. And thus the noncalcified nodules that more frequently meet criteria that prompts biopsy of the nodule. Appropriate treatment of lung nodules is best done at facilities with experienceSee 2 more doctor answers
Depends: The pattern of calcification is important. Lamellar, popcorn, central, and diffuse homogenous calcification are usually benign. Anything else that size is very suspicious.See 2 more doctor answers
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.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes if new: Some people contact TB as children and develop calcified nodes. If this is new and if you have been a long-term smoker do not fail to follow up with the doctor who discovered this because might be a malignancy. An old x-ray film could help to settle this matter.See 2 more doctor answers
I have a lung nodule in which the center is calcified in a bean shape within a round shadow, could it be malignant?
Likely benign: Probably granuloma but should be followed with x-ray or ct. Obtain any old films for tracking purposes.See 1 more doctor answer
Had a second opinion by a pulmonologist, who told me that I should not worry about a 2cm calcified lung nodule, is this a safe approach?
Pulmonologist said a lung nodule I have is benign, I still feel uneasy about his answer, should I seek a second opinion? Nodule is 2 CM calcified
Biopsy: A calcified nodule is likley benign. You need to compare thx xray with an old film of your chest if you have. Ct of the chest is helpful. If any doubt tissue biopsy will confirm the nature of this nodule. If you are not comfortable with the response nothing is wrong with getting another opinion.See 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?
Yes and yes.: Get an opinion from pulmonologist or thoracic surgeon regarding opinion about possible biopsy. It depends whether or not the benefits of biopsy outweigh its risks.
Doctor said that lung nodule I have is calcified, and due to old glanulomatous disease, how do I know if this is right?
Try 2nd opinion: Calcified nodules are a relatively simple diagnosis either by chest x-ray, or even more reliably, by ct scan. If you have any doubts, get a referral to another radiologist for a second opinion. There will usually be a charge for this, but if it puts your mind at ease it will be worth it.See 2 more doctor answers
