Questionable right lower lobe lung nodule vs end on vessel a followup x-ray is recomended in 3 month to reassess.No acute anatomic finding. any wrong?
Unclear: The lauded radiologist, whoever it was that issued the report, is uncertain as to whether a nodule was found in the lung, or if there was a confounding shadow from a vessel. That is why he/she recommends a repeat of the exam (X-ray) in 3 months. A malignant nodule would get bigger. A stable appearance suggests a benign anomaly or artifact. Without seeing the actual film, nothing more can be said. ...Read more
Probably so: Biopsy of a lung nodule depends on the size and location. A nodule smaller than 1 cm is difficult to biopsy. A nodule located too close to the heart or main blood vessels is difficult to biopsy. A nodule too adjacent to the ribs may also be difficult to biopsy. In your case ct follow up at intervals by established guidelines may be considered. ...Read more
Right hip & thigh lymphedema & fever both unknown origin. 2mm & smaller indeterminant pulmonary nodules in right lower lobe. Possibly related?
2mm lung nodule lower left lobe - unrelated CT found it - on 1yr fu it's now 4mm. Any reason other than cancer it would grow? I just quit smoking.
Benign possibilities: There are many benign causes of a solitary pulmonary nodule. However, with a smoking history, you probably ought to have it biopsied, if possible, or even removed. This is to be certain that this isn't due to an early malignancy whose removal would likely be curative. Kudos to you for smoking cessation; keep up the good work. Good luck! see a cardiothoracic surgeon for evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
Lung mass: If a lung mass is seen on chest xray or ct scan and the patient has a moderate risk of malignancy, often the next test is a positron emission tomography (pet scan). This test detects masses with high metabolic rates. Around 95% of patients with a malignant nodule will have a positive pet scan. It is falsely positive in about 21% of patients, meaning that it will suggest cancer when it is not. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
