Right Middle Lobe
What does two pleurally based nodular densities noted along the right middle lobe and lingula respectively, mean?

The radiologist is: not sure what to make of this small nodule. If it was to be calcified then it would be one thing. For example an old residual of infection. This is not calcified. This opens up many other possibilities. An old infection is still a consideration. It depends on where it is in the lung, how many and do you have an old study. It may be worthwhile waiting a short period and repeat the ct to check it ...Read more

Vats done on right middle lobe Jan. 15/15. Moderate pneumothorax. Chest tube still in place Jan. 29. Should I be concerned?
Depends on condition: Removal is usually by the 1 who put it in. The chest tube is meant to re-inflate the lung, & shd e removed when conditions r "right" in the eyes of the thoracic surgeon. As long as the lung doesn't properly re-expand, there is a leak, or the lung has a good chance of collapse, the surgeon leaves the chest tube in. The chest tube is most painful right b4 it comes out, as the lung lining is sensitiv ...Read more

Ct shows mild atelectasis right middle lobe and bilateral lower lobes as well as a few 4mm nodules left lower lobe. Should i be seen asap?
No: These findings do not require urgent management. Atelectasis just means small areas of lung do not have enough air in them which can be due to your history of asthma. 4mm nodules are usually benign but require a 12mo follow-up if you have no smoking history or 6mo follow-up if you've ever smoked. ...Read more
