Sarcoidosis Lung Nodules
Severe HPV (plantars), sarcoidosis w/ atypical lung nodules 8mm with suv of 10.9 what are chances of cancer? No lung bx done other site pos for sarc
Hard to say: Do you have significant risk for lung cancer? Are you a smoker? If yes, you need to stop smoking . The lung nodule is likely sarcoidosis of the lung although if you are also a heavy smoker, lung cancer is possible. I will suggest you to have a follow up ct scan to ensure stability if it is rapidly growing, while your sarcoidosis is quite without symptom perhaps biopsy can be considered then. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
I have atypical lung nodule dr is attributing to sarcoidosis as have been dx'd by bx of parotid tumor. Pet said suv of 10.9 should this be of concern?
Further w/u. : How big is the lung nodule? Are you a smoker? With suv of 10.9- i think, a biopsy should be done- if possible - ( if the size and location allow tissue biopsy to be done).It could be a sarcoidois, but just because you have sarcoidosis-does not mean that this nodule is automatically one. Depending on your risk- other condition including- primary lung malignancy- has to be considered and ruled out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have nodules on my lungs, with the largest one being 4mm i also have one on my thyroid and voice box. The lung nodules were found incidentally during a CT of my bowels. Could this be sarcoidosis?
Possibly: It's not unusual for there to be small nodules in the lung as you age. There are a lot of things from benign granulomas to lung cancer that are possible. Sarcoidosis in the lung is squally symptomatic. You will need to have few serial ct scans to mae sure they don't change in any way. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have had chest pain for 5 mos, an 8mm noncalcified nodule on my left lung, swollen left hilar and axillary lymph nodes and CRP is 12.4. Sarcoidosis?
In 72'-74', I was on a U.S Navy ship, which was full of asbestos. In 05', I was diagnosed with that left lung nodule. May this have caused my nodule?
You're still alive: If the nodule was found ten years ago, and you had no illness as a result, then this is not cancer. If it were cancer, you might have a pretty good case. I'm glad it's not. Asbestosis itself presents as diffuse thickening of the lung texture, or of the pleural surfaces. Most lung nodules in non-smokers (hope that's you) are old histoplasmosis, which is harmless. Thanks for your service. ...Read more
Generally no worries: These are likely "healed" TB or fungal infection that the body has "walled off" and calcified. Usually called calcified granulomas. Very common, especially in certain parts of the world where specific fungi are endemic in the environment - in those areas, nearly every one has them and they do no harm. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: is the short answer. Asbestos can cause several different changes to the chest and lung fields. Pulmonary nodules are just one example. Pleural disease including plaques and calcification as well as mesothelioma are side affects of asbestos. Lung cancer is also a problem. Don't ignore this nodule. Talk to your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Get it TNM staged.: 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. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
No symptoms: Lung nodules have no symptoms, unfortunately. Most of the time, they are benign things like scars, but sometimes they can be early cancers. If you have a nodule found on a cat scan, they need to be followed to make sure they don't grow or change over time. This is especially true if you have risk factors for cancer such as smoking or radiation exposure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes if new: Some people contact TB as children and develop calcified nodes. If this is new and if you have been a long-term smoker do not fail to follow up with the doctor who discovered this because might be a malignancy. An old x-ray film could help to settle this matter. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
