Clinical findings: Question of age of process in right upper lobe. If symptoms are acute with fever and cough then usually pneumonia which needs antibiotic therapy. If present previously and related to previous illness then represents chronic change which may or may not require additional therapy. Should consult doctor who referred you for radiograph. ...Read more
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
Pleural bassed nodule at posterior aspect os mid cephalad right lower lobe of lung 7 x 4 mm. Also linear atelectasis within right midlung. Age 73?
Follow up of nodule: The linear atelectasis is nothing to worry about. The pleural based nodule sounds like a potentially benign nodule. Surveillance of a nodule of this size, however, is frequently recommended, particularly if you have a smoking history. Please sure to talk to your doctor for the appropriate steps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Hi, I was diagnosed with my chest apicolordotic view , shows some reticulonodular densities at my right upper lung field suggestive of PTB undetermined activity.Can this densities would clear after treatment?
Chest CT says subcentimeter diameter parenchymal densities what does that mean also faint 6mm ground glass in medial aspect l upper lobe is stable?
Follow up: Small nodules are hard to diagnose as biopsy can miss them. Furthermore, it seems there are several in your case. Depending on the size things like pet scan can give us clues but usually we follow with another imaging to see if they are changing or growing. Ggo (ground glass opacities are the same) and it seems stable in your case. I am sure another ct is anticipated. ...Read more
I had a Upper abd & pelvic CT that was clear. But their was the following accidental finding: Minor pleural thickening posteriorly in the lower right zone & small bilateral pleural effusion. Couple of parenchymal bands - left upper lobe. ?
HRCT scan chest result focal parenchymal fibrosis rt middle & left lower lobe.w/mammal residual ground glass/opacities. What is the meaning? Prognosis
Hard to know: The findings indicate changes to lung structure in these areas, possibly some scarring and possibly with some fluid/inflammation of the smallest air pockets. Without more knowledge of the clinical history, however, any meaningful interpretation is impossible. The physician who ordered the test will discuss within context of the medical situation. ...Read more
14mmx8mmx13 mm smooth bordered pleural based nodule anterior left upper lobe demonstrates intermediate grade activity. SUV max 1.3g/ml. Treatment?
Time: The nodule should be watched carefully. If you are a smoker then may need much closer workup. If you have cancer you then may need a closer workup. If this has been there then tincture of time may be the answer. Get an opinion from a lung doctor as to the best way to work this up from here. Best wishes ...Read more
Both of my thyroid lobes demonstrate heterogeneous echotexture without focal nodule. right lobe measures L: 3.37 cm, left lobe measures L: 3.33 cm?
Thyroid: A heterogeneous, normal sized thyroid may not mean much, or it could indicate one of a number of inflammatory/infiltrative processes i.e. thyroiditis. Sometimes symptoms may not be noticed. The thyroid US findings must be interpreted in conjunction with lab values/thyroid function tests, symptoms, and clinical findings to assess the significance, so best bet is to discuss with your doc. ...Read more
29/f bilateral anterior upper lobe groundglass opacities and small right pulmonary nodules up to 5mm. Smoker and svt. Seriousness? Next steps? What is
Follow with PCP: You need your doctor to guide you. Any opacities in lungs need to be further investigated as to the cause. Lung nodules may or may not be related. But they should be monitored for further growth or change using a repeat ct scan 4-6 weeks after the last one. If you have any fever then you need to be tested sooner than later. ...Read more
What does "left lung lower lobe shows a subcm parenchymal nodule with mild tracer update (SUV max 1..8)" mean when doing a whole body PET CT?
Atelectasis: Atelectasis is a condition in which one or more areas of your lungs collapse or don't inflate properly. If only a small area or a few small areas of lung are affected, you may have no signs or symptoms. If a large area or several large areas of lung are affected, they may not be able to deliver enough oxygen to your blood. This can cause symptoms and complications. ...Read more
I am detected with lacunar chronic infract in right periventricular region abducting the wall of ventricle pl advice?
7 weeks post left lobar pneumonia and right lower fluid, ct scan shows scarring inflammation right lower. Is this post pneumonia? autoimmune disease?
Pneumonia: Pneumonia and empyema (pus in the pleural space) can produce scarring, depending on the organism, the duration of infection and your reaction to it. Autoimmune disease would be less likely with what you describe, but if this concerns you greatly, seeing an infectious diseases expert or a pulmonologist might be helpful. ...Read more
11 yr old daughter. Chronic cough. Her MRI showed this8 mm right lower lobe nodule with increased signal in the right hilum possible l?
I had lung ctscan showing groundglass opacities n bilateral lower&right upper lobe representing cellular nonspecific interstitial pneumonia what is it?
Xray : Right lung upper zone shows patchy fibrocalcific changes. Remaining lung fields are clear. Evidence of bilateral bifid rib L anterior 4 R 3?
Consult ordering dr: Bifid ribs are congenital and usually are of no consequence and are variations of normal. Fibrocalcific disease is probably related to previous granulomatous infection. Most common is tuberculosis. In Southwest coccidiodomycosis is fungal cause. In midwest Blastomycosis is usually cause. Long term antibiotic treatment sounds like a chronic infection like one of the above. Various testing available ...Read more
