Pain on touch on rt shoulder blade and when i bend my neck ~ 2 months. Chest CT clear, seldom pain in rt shoulder also. Am a smoker, lung cancer?
Not likely: Not likely lung cancer. Sounds like muscle-skeletal pain, ie muscle sprain. If it persists for a few weeks then it warrants a doctor visit. Your ct scan is normal so this is less likely lung cancer. Lung cancer doesn't make you hurt upon touch. Smokers have a 20 fold risk of getting lung cancer. But that risk goes down significantly if they quit for about 5 years. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
When screening for small cell lung cancer how big does a mass seen on a CT should be considered for investigation or benign .
THAT'S the question!: The smaller you make the cutoff, the more false-positives you get. Screening has led to a tremendous increase in cases found, but very little overall reduction in lung cancer mortality. Usually it's adenocarcinomas that we find, not small-cells. You decide what it all means. Best wishes. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25326638 ...Read more

Chest CT clr in jan, chest pain on touch in ribs symtricly opposite ~4mnths, back pain with bending neck frwrd~10mnths smoker, lung cancer?
Neck/back pain: Lung cancer is unlikely. The symptoms are more likely due to muscle/tendon strain or a disc herniation in the neck or mid back area. Smoking dries out the tissues and can accelerate arthritis. Smoking slows healing from muscle strains and tears too. See a neurosurgeon to evaluate the pain and see your medical doctor to work on a program to quit smoking. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
