My  cousin had his chest X-ray today and the radiologist said to him that his lung is enlarged and  his heart is not visible.?

Kind of Weird: I'd say that is kind of weird. I suggest before you put much stock into what you ever learn in any x ray department, you wait and discuss the results with the doctor who ordered the x ray. A lot of misinformation comes from x ray department employees. I know that will offend some folks, but that is my experience. ...Read more

Lung (Definition)

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

How do I remove my chest spots from my lungs which appeared on an X-ray after I suffered from tuberculousis?

How do I remove my chest spots from my lungs which appeared on an X-ray after I suffered from tuberculousis?

You cannot: These spots are not removable. You need not be concerned about them. Keep good records since it is very likely that someone in the future will see these spots and without records you might be asked to do a lot of unnecessary tests. ...Read more

In a 'normal' 4&1/2yr old boy's chest xray, should you be able to see 3-4mm white-grey round spots thru out his lungs?

In a 'normal' 4&1/2yr old boy's chest xray, should you be able to see 3-4mm white-grey round spots thru out his lungs?

Probably vessels: Ask your doctor to confirm that the radiologist did not see anything worrisome. Without seeing the images, it is difficult to know for sure what you are seeing. That said, a normal chest xray usually has scattered round densities that represent the larger pulmonary vessels "on end." the vessels aim many directions and some are positioned just right to look like round spots. ...Read more

I have a chest X-ray with me and radiologist told me that I have a calcified focus in right apex. Is there any way that we can remove that spot?

I have a chest X-ray with me and radiologist told me that I have a calcified focus in right apex. Is there any way that we can remove that spot?

Monitor only: There is a good chance this is an inactive process that needs only occasional monitoring. Removal of such a focus would entail excision of the involved lung segment and the potential for significant complications and scarring. Not a good plan. ...Read more

What can cause spots on a chest X-ray besides cancer?

What can cause spots on a chest X-ray besides cancer?

Many sources...: Many medical conditions can cause spots to form on lungs. The most common in the US include prior tuberculosis infection and/or prior histoplasmosis infection (a fungal infection). These spots may be called "nodules" by your doctor. If they are small (less than 8 mm) they may be followed over time with repeat/serial scans of the chest. If in 2 years they do not change they are benign. ...Read more

What can cause dark spots on a chest x-ray? There are several black spots on my chest x-rays. I thought tumors where white, so what could these be?

The : The first thing to know about a chest x-ray is that dark things represent air or fat, which white things represent fluid, tissue, and bone. Therefore, "dark spots" on a chest film, especially if they are in the lungs, most likely represent holes. Lungs with a lot of disease--especially in smokers--can develop large cavities called bullae. Dark spots in the ribs or the bones of the spine and shoulders may represent destructive processes like infection or tumor. When people talk about "spots" on a chest film they're usually talking about white spots. White spots in the lungs can be caused by pneumonia or other infections, areas of partial lung collapse, or tumors. Extremely white spots can represent calcium deposits, as are often present iin the arteries of people with vascular disease and in the lining of the chest wall in people with asbestos exposure.. Chest films can be some of the most challenging xrays to read, because just about every disease out there causes some kind of abnormality in the chest. The list of differential diagnoses (that is, the possible causes of an abnormality) is very long. ...Read more
