Right Hilar Mass On Lung
Ct chest adrenal nodule 1.9 CM right. Lungs demonstrate babisalar dependent atelectasis small subpleural bullae noted right up lobe trace pericardial?
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
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
6mm nodule left lung base pleural surface and faint 6mm nodule on left lower sub pleural lobe found from CT. Enlarged heart found on right side. Also very slight alveolitis found in right upper lobe. ?
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
Small subpleural nodules in right upper lobe.Mild aread of fibrosis in bilateral apices.Mild mediastinal lymphadenopathy.Enlarged carinal lymph node.?
Unknown: Complete history, exposures, symptoms, etc... Would be critical. Subcarinal nodes could be sampled. In addition, depending on radiographic appearance and interpretation, could have lung biopsies as well. But, potential diagnosis is fairly large, numerous possibilities. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Questionable small density at the left upper lung field and linear atelectasis is superimposed on the left hilum.What? Cancer? Remainder lungs clear.
Possible: The possibility of cancer is almost always there. The risk depends on the smoking history, family history of cancer, the size of the mass, etc.. Smokers are at higher risk. Certain cancers are familial. Larger spots and those with ragged edges are more likely to be cancerous. Consultation with oncologist or lung specialist may be considered.. ...Read more
Lumpectomy and radiation last year. Was small amt of cancer in node. Now small shadow on upper right lung CT but radiation on left side. Lung cancer?
Difficult to say: small shadow can be many different things. In the absence of old studies this could have been there for years. Old study is crucial before jumping to conclusions. Old granulomas from old infections can present the same way. It is best to err on the side of caution and have a follow up study to see if it changes before jumping to conclusions. ...Read more
Bibasilar sub CM pulmonary nodules noted on CT scan.Sclerotic focus in right and left iliac,0.4cm and 0.5cm.1.7cm complex right ovarian cyst.Concerns?
Prob. not.: All those items seems relatively benign, ie, not important. If it associated with abnormal labwork, or significant symptoms, then a PET scan may be more useful to identify active disease. If this is the first time the lung nodules have been seen, then a follow up CT in 3-4 months would be recommended. ...Read more
a 3cm nodule on the right thyroid.. left side removed already The ct scan indicated 1.5cm rt upper lung. related? cancer risk?
More evaluation: You will need more evaluation. You need to give a better history. What kind of thyroid lesion did you have before? Why was only this lobe removed? You need to follow closely with your doctor and further testing ...Read more
Many rt. Paratracheal/mediastinal, bilateral hilar nodes consistent w/metastasis. Right subcarinal metastatic node mass 3cm. Max suv 9.1. Lung cancer?
Needs Biopsy: Is there a known primary cancer? If not, you will need a biopsy of one of the nodes. Your doctor may suggest a mediastinoscopy and biopsy to get a tissue specimen. There are other causes of mediastinal node enlargement such as infection and sarcoidosis so it is important to make a definite diagnosis. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Finally got my CT scan report. It says calcified left hilar lymph nodes and calcified left lower lobe granuloma. History of oral cancer. Benign?
"Granuloma": The airways are a common portal of entry of organisms that can cause an inflammatory reaction we call granulomatous. As these age, they become more scar-like and occasionally will calcify. An infectious site from the lung can sometimes seed lymh nodes in the mediastinum and then calcify as well. While tumors sometimes also calcify the radiologic pattern is usually different. So good news 4u ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Right lung mass. Bilateral nodules. Question of right hilar adenopathy. This is information listed as a result of ct scan of chest.
Had chest xray a mild perihilar patch consolidation found on mid left lung..Now supraclavicular node swollen left side and more wheezy .Is itcancer?
What does endobronchial carcinoma left upper lobe complete atelectasis is suspeted 7 CM left hilar mass highly suspious for endobronchial carcinoma?
Not sure of ?: It sounds as f you are asking about what this cancer is. What you are describing sounds like a stage 3a or maybe a stage 2b nonsmall cell lung cancer. Best treatment would depend upon some more information needed. It will be dependent on if it is considered surgically resectable or not. It will require chemotherapy and possibly radiation as well. Curable but serious. Good luck and best wishes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Male 30,Chest CT shows 6 mm nodular density in the left upper lobe,minimal bibasilar dependent atelectasis, have shortness of breath,it needs surgery?
Ultrasound: 2.6cm isoechoic mass in right hepatic lobe.14mm hyperechoic nodule in right anterior lobe. What does it mean?
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
A very faint subpleural nodular density in the left lower lobe posterolaterally noted on CT Scan along with minor nodularity to posterior lung bases?
Post obstructive: Pneumonia can sometimes develo behind a mass and this is know as a post obstructive pneumonia. Sometimes pneumonia itself can be so dense that it will appear as a mass. You will likely need an airway evaluation called a bronchoscopy to determine what is going on in your lungs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
