Noncalcified Nodule On Lung
I have had chest pain for 5 mos, an 8mm noncalcified nodule on my left lung, swollen left hilar and axillary lymph nodes and CRP is 12.4. Sarcoidosis?
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
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
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

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
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
I am at very high risk for lung cancer. A noncalcified nodule showed up on screening ct. Scared to wait the 3 months for next ct. What else can I do?
Severe chest pain, calcium screening showed chronic pulmonary hypertension& lung nodules. Had CT of chest 3mm & 8mm noncalcified granulomas.helpplease?
Lung nodules: many causes of lung granulomas. Histoplasmosis a fungus in the dirt is probably most common cause. Being around construction sites or bird handling are frequent causes especially around Ohio river. Connective tissue causes like sarcoidosis and wegeners can also cause. Working in dusty areas or around talc is known cause. With pulmonary hypertension you need to see a pulmonologist for definitive dx ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
