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

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.

What should I do for a lung nodule found on right lung?

Get it TNM staged.

Nodule
If there is a lung nodule, and it appears solitary, it still needs to be evaluated to see if there is no metastasis, etc.. CT scan and an ENT (Ears, Nose, and Throat) exam are done. The CT helps determine if there is lymph node involvement. An aspiration biopsy of the lesion can be taken to determine its histology. Surgical resection in localized cases is done for all types except small cell.

Can VATS procedure be done to remove a half inch nodule in right lung?

Potentially

Depends on the anatomic position. If not involving the airway or "wind pipe" then can be removed by either a wedge, segmentectomy or lobectomy, if indicated, via VATS.

2.5mm nodule grew to 8mm in upper right lung lobe in 3 years should I be worried?

Concern reasonable

Stringio
It is important any lung nodule be thoroughly investigated and closely followed by a comprehensive thoracic team. As noted, a growing nodule is cause for concern. That said, the characteristics, location, and patient history impact decisions. Your concerns should be fully discussed with your physician.

What's the meaning of a suspicious parenchymal nodule on my right lung ? This. Showed on my last X-ray

Need to see a doctor

Lung
I assume this means a nodule was seen on your chest X-ray that looks like it may be dangerous. It usually requires comparison with prior X-rays and evaluation by a doctor.

My mom age 60yrs had severe cough with expectorant since 6yrs ,CT lungs shows small calification nodule in sub pleural region in rt basal lung?

Calcified

Open-uri20131208-12972-1af6cvh
Th cough and the nodule may not be related. A calcified nodule is frequently benign. If it is the only abnormality on scan, commonly recommended is another scan 3-6 months later to be certain it's not growing. If no growth in 3-6 months, another scan at 1 year might be suggested.

Chest Xray revealed 1 cm nodule in right lung. I'm 47 & Non smoker; can exp to ammonium hydrogen fluoride cause this? x-ray & ct scan 2 wks later

Unsure

Chest_x-ray
Ammonium hydrogen fluoride is definitely a dangerous product. While inhaling it as a mist can cause chemical burning of the lung tissue, I do not know if it will cause a nodule.
