Doctor insights on:
Generally no worries: These are likely "healed" TB or fungal infection that the body has "walled off" and calcified. Usually called calcified granulomas. Very common, especially in certain parts of the world where specific fungi are endemic in the environment - in those areas, nearly every one has them and they do no harm. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Ct angiogram shows non calcified opacity on middle lobe 4mm. Appearance of benign intrapulmonary lymph node on lung with no pleural abnormalites.
Opacity: The question to your doctor should be - is this an incidental pulmonary nodule or something more concerning. If the ct angio was done for something completely unrelated, and it was a true incidental finding, some guidelines say that under a certain size (4mm) for low risk patients (no smoking, etc), then no follow up is needed. Otherwise a biopsy or interval imaging followup is appropriate. ...Read more
2mm lung nodule grew to 4.5 mm in 12 mo new nodule noncalcified punctate 2.7mm , 1palpable intramammary lymph node and tiny axillary nodes, related?
Thyroid ultrasound1.4x1.1x1.1cm rim calcified nodule left mid thyroid.Well circumscribe hypoechoic1.4x1.9x1cm nodule w/mild internal flow.Is it cancer?
Let's find out: This may be nothing but a colloid nodule in a developing nodular goiter. If the radiologist can't rule out cancer, you may be getting a fine-needle aspiration. With this pattern of calcification, it's unlikely to be an aggressive tumor even if it is cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Adrenal eval: Hi. The adrenal nodule needs to be evaluated. What were the Hounsfield units on the non-contrast scan of the nodule? Your endocrinologist will determine: 1) if it's producing any hormones, and 2) if it's growing. If high Hounsfield units, it needs sooner evaluation. Any hirsutism, amenorrhea, diabetes, serious high blood pressure, sweating, headache, palpitations, etc? Good luck! ...Read more
3 thyroid nodules, hypoechoic solid nodule with few tiny calcified 1st FNA is benign follicular lesion and 2nd is benign follicular nodule,possible?
Thyroid follicles: Most likely, the ultrasound is picking up benign follicular cysts, or areas of "colloid" (where thyroid hormone is made) arranged in a circular pattern or nodule. From the description (& the 2 FNA biopsies) it's unlikely to be cancer. In certain parts of the world (40% of it), iodine deficiency is common & thyroid nodules are prominent. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/thyroid-nodules ...Read more
I'm a smoker with several pulmonary nodules noncalcified have caugh always 2 nodules grew from 3mm/4mm & 5mm/6mm from april to july what's going on?
It is a small: lung mass. There are benign and potentially malignant causes. Whether it needs workup depends on its imaging features and your clinical history. Sometimes a biopsy is necessary to determine what it is, other times it can be safely followed or ignored. The presence of calcification is important because most of the time a calcified nodule is benign. ...Read more
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
Is 3 yrs long enough for 3 granulomas to calcify? Why would they still be noncalcified? 3 found in left lower lobe in lung.
Lung granulomas: 36 F asks: Is 3 yrs long enough for 3 granulomas to calcify? Why would they still be noncalcified? 3 found in left lower lobe in lung. ANS: depends on what is causing the granuloma. Some never do. & depends on what most common cause of lung granulomas in Eufaula. So the best person to ask is a chest specialist who has been practicing near Eufaula for a long time. Have that Dr examine u & X-ray ...Read more
Noncalcified 6mm upper lung nodule. Stayed that way for 3 years. 4th year it grew to 8.4mm. 5th year is 1.2cm. Could this be slow growing cancer?
Yes!!! : Lung nodules are checked every 6 months for 2 years. If they dont change in size, they are considered stable, and annual cxr is in order. If it grows, it could be malignant. 6 mm to 1.2 cm is a lot of change, so see your primary care doctor for a pulmonary consultation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My ultra sound for carotid artery showed, "mild noncalcified plaquenin carotid systems bilaterally" should I be worried?-(healthy 70 year old male)
No: Only when the obstruction is around 70% or higher we recommend surgery ( endarterectomy or scraping of the plaques ) but we order an mra or dsa to confirm it . In the mean time you could take 81 mg of Aspirin (if not allergic or contraindicated )and lower your cholesterol as much as you can.. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
My cta listed subcentimeter hypodense thyroid lesions and pulmonary nodules in upper right lobe with largest 8mm. Noncalcified. Should I be worried?
Lung CT scan impression: multiple small nodules largest 6mm ill-defined semisolid noncalcified medial left upper lobe ?
Lung Nodules:: It is fairly common for people to have benign lung nodules that are incidentally found on ct scans. Would recommend a follow-up scan in a few months just to make sure they are not growing. If you smoke, please stop! but, i wouldn't be too worried about these small lung nodules. Check back with your physician for a follow-up plan. ...Read more
(36 and smoker)What could 3 noncalcified lung nodules sizes 6mm- 4mm left lower lobe be? Found on ct, what would be next step to identify cause?
Many possibilities.: Noncalcified lung nodules are worrisome, especially if you are a smoker (as you have), & more so if you are a "heavy" smoker (based on number of packs per day, & no of yrs that you've smoked). A nodule could be scar tissue, or the effects of an infection or radiation; however, most worrisome, of course, is lung cancer. To identify cause, next step is usually bronchoscopy (scope to look) & biopsy. ...Read more
Ct chest scan showed several small 2 mm noncalcified but stable pulmonary nodules in both lungs.Should i be concerned. What symptoms could this cause?
Probably not: 2mm nodules are quite small. If these nodules have not grown(monitored by ct) over significant period of time (months), the likelihood of malignancy is small. These are probably granulomas or scar tissue secondary to previous infection. ...Read more
