Small Nodular Density Overlies The Anterior Aspect Of The Right Sixth Rib
The result of my chest xray shows a suspicious nodular density overlying the left first anterior rib. Another nodular opacity is seen overlying the left 9th posterior rib is this means that my breast cancer already metastisis in my lungs? Do I have to und
Advice: It sounds like you have a complex medical history and a potentially complicated situation. The best advise I can give is to ask the doctor who ordered the x-ray to explain it to you and refer you to the appropriate caregiver. I wish you well. ...Read more
Hi My chest ct scan showed nodules, tiny. Calcified and called nodular densities. No further testing Recommended. Could it be Mets from unknown?
Calcified nodules are not mets.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
Is nodular density in chest X-ray beside nipple shadow it's usually represent cancer or there are other causes?
Chest xray nodule: Lung nodules can be caused by a variety of things - can be caused by infection, inflammation, cancer, non-cancerous growths. I would recommend a patient contact their doctor to see what recommended followup is for them. There are definitely possibilities other than cancer. ...Read more
Ct chest w/contrast found multiple tiny nodular densities within lung parenchyma. How serious is it. I get sob when I bend over or do yoga exercise.?
These are unlikely to cause shortness of breath. Most commonly these nodules are evidence of a prior infection such as histoplasmosis, especially if you have resided in the ohio river valley, or less likely tuberculosis. These are known as granulomas.
However, other causes are also possible. Your doctor that referred you for the scan should be able to determine if you need more tests. ...Read more
Male 30, Chest CT shows 6 mm nodular density in the left upper lobe, minimal bibasilar dependent atelectasis, have shortness of breath, it needs surgery?
I had findings on a pre op chest xray blood workup. Ast/alt was 32 for each. In chest xray a 9mm nodular density at medial rt lung. Also tortuous aorta?
Liver no.'s: Not that bad- follow up nodular density with pcp, not much to do with aorta- were you a smoker? Are your lipids normal? --see your pcp. ...Read more
My husband (32) had a chest xray and a small nodular opacity was found (size unk). Nonsmoker with a history of pneumonia. How worried should we be?
Probably not but: Anything like this needs further workup. Is there some type of industrial exposure.? Why did he have the chest xray. In some parts of the country nodular density are more common due to environmental exposure. See your doc and he may need to get a CT to complete the workup. ...Read more
Yes: If it is large enough and located in a site that would ordinary produce the pain. It can stretch the liver capsule which is quite sensitive. Gallstone disease is a more common cause of pain here and you'll probably want this ruled out; it tends to be colicky and less related to position. ...Read more
If on PA chest X-ray seen nodular dense On the left lung side, but it didn't seen on the lateral and oblique view, do I usually need future tests?
Yes: A lung nodule should likely be followed up to figure out what exactly it is. A CT is best. ...Read more

More info: Is needed. Are you referring to a breast ultrasound? ...Read more
Did CT chest w/contrast, radiologist said multiple tiny nodular and possible scarring. Pulmonologist said scars could be false results (blood vessel)?
What's the question?: Sounds like your chest ct report has relatively minor findings. Tiny nodules are most commonly the result of prior granulomatous infection like histoplasmosis or even infections from pets. We usually never realize we were infected. If there are no nodules larger than 4mm and are not in a high risk group (heavy smoker) there is a less than 1% risk of malignancy. ...Read more
My sister had a uppper rt lung lobectomy last year. ..Has non small cell adeonocarcinoma....Ct scans and pet scans every 3 months...Past 2 recent CT scans plus pet scan are showing an increased pleural based nodular density in the rt lower lobe anteriorly
Could be recurrence:
This needs to be worked up - it could be recurrent cancer, or possibly reactive, especially if radiation therapy was performed.
See the oncologist and ask for specifics about this finding.
Was the pet scan positive in the same area? If so, that raises the concern, but it still could be reactive. ...Read more
Suspicious densities overlying the right first anterior rib, apicolordotic view is suggested. What is the meaning of it?
AP lordotic view: The x-ray technician will take an additional view of your chest to help see the apex (top) of your lung. This area is difficult to see on a regular chest x-ray because of the ribs and collar bone. Sometimes a tumor in that area can cause pancoast syndrome, but it is rare. ...Read more
Hi, my xray result told that there's an ovoid density projecting over the 6th anterior rib, what was that mean? Thanks.

What does low density nodular thickening of both adrenal glands without suspicious enhancement, presumably on the basis of small adenomas mean on my c?
My cxr results say: minimal equivocal densities are suggested in the lateral middle lung field superimposed on the 3rd to 4th anterior rib shadows... What does that mean? I have no cough, not had a fever in months, non-smoker
Chest xray what does small bone island 3rd left post rib, osseous density adjacent left 1st ant rib, low dens areas in clavicles scalpula humeri mean?
It is difficult to know the significance of the report you describe without more history.
A bone island is a small benign sclerotic focus in the bone, but you also mention low density areas in the clavicles, scapula and humeri.
Be sure to follow up with your referring physician about the significance of these findings.
I hope this helps. ...Read more
Chest CT says subcentimeter diameter parenchymal densities what does that mean also faint 6mm ground glass in medial aspect l upper lobe is stable?
Follow up: Small nodules are hard to diagnose as biopsy can miss them. Furthermore, it seems there are several in your case. Depending on the size things like pet scan can give us clues but usually we follow with another imaging to see if they are changing or growing. Ggo (ground glass opacities are the same) and it seems stable in your case. I am sure another ct is anticipated. ...Read more
Punctate metallic density or calcific density projects over right lateral anterior chest wall. Xray results. What does this mean?
Chest films: It would help to be able to see the x-ray. This is often a foreign body, bullets being very common, or there can be a calcified lymph node. You need to ask your doctor about this since they can get further studies to better define the source of this. Actually if you were wearing clothing or a piece of jewelry, or a prior surgical clip that may be the source. ...Read more
I did a chest X-ray recently and this was my diagnosis: a small 3mm punctate density projected over right apical region possibly represent granuloma.
Do not worry: There a small area of calcification which the residue of a healed inflammatory lesion. ...Read more
Please explain what these CT findings mean and thank you so much ahead of time. Pleural based nodule in right upper chest size-2x6mm. A slightly asymmetric biapical plueroparenchymal scarring. Also small calcific densities measuring 3.5 mm in the right l
Most likely OK: Small pleural based nodule is most likely a granuloma (left over from prior infection) but could conceivably be a small cancer. You will most likely be followed with ct, especially if you are a smoker. If there is no growth it is probably just a small granuloma and no biopsy is necessary. Biapical pleural parenchymal scarring is very common, but may also be followed. Calcific densities r likely ok. ...Read more
Chest X-ray results say curvilinear density in the R pericardial region. Could represent fat pad or small R middle lobe infiltrate. Lung cancer?
It is unlikely: That it is cancer, but it still may require further evaluation with a CT scan to be sure. If you had any previous chest xrays elsewhere, have them sent to the radiologist to compare with the new one. That could solve the issue without any additional tests. Talk to your doctor about the results. ...Read more
Would u feel lung pains in your back? Or the front of ur chest? I'm healthy 17 feeling small burns in chest area maybe acid reflux?
Hi. My friends chest xray reveals suspicious density overlying the 5th right posterior rib. What does it suggest? Is there a chance that this is TB?
You need a CT: Your question is very nonspecific my friend. "Suspicious" is a vague term without clarification of what it is suspicious for. Could it be a density as dense as bone? Then it might be something growing from the rib. If not quite as dense, it could be anything from pneumonia to cancer. TB is also possible. A CT scan will help narrow down the possibilities. ...Read more

Should I be concerned after mammography? There is a 1.1 cm rounded nodular density in the superior right breast, middle/posterior depth junction.
Mammogram: There are various mammographic features that determine the level of suspicion, however at this point it sounds like you haven't had an ultrasound, so the evaluation is not complete. Usually these turn out benign, e.g. a cyst, but if it is solid on ultrasound, needle biopsy may be needed to establish a diagnosis. Those usually turn out benign too. So yes, concerned but not alarmed. ...Read more
Hi doc, what is suspicious nodular and hazy densities in the right upper? Is this already a tubercolosis?
Nope: The biggest difference will be made by where you live and your symptoms. If you live in an endemic area and you have had symptoms such as cough, blood in sputum, weight loss, etc, then tb will be definitely in the differential diagnosis as early lesions are usually seen in the upper lobes, the description otherwise is too nonspecific to confirm the diagnosis. ...Read more
What does two pleurally based nodular densities noted along the right middle lobe and lingula respectively, mean?
I am suffering from rib pain on the left. I feel it is muscular more on the lateral aspect. I cannot take a full breath & it hurts to fully exhale.
Waiting for appt w/ pulm trying not to over think can please explain "osseous density adjacent to rib" on cxr? I have sharp pain off on in area of rib
Osseous density: The radiologist who read would probably be the best person to ask. My guess that there may be some bone island adjacent to the rib - something you may have been born with. Usually, it is fairly well differentiated from any malignancy by the way it looks. If in doubt, a ct scan of the chest is usually the next step in helping sort it all out. ...Read more
I have tiny nodular density in right upper lung. What does it mean? Does it mean im not fit to work? Thanks
If the nodule is very small, it is most likely benign. Your risk factors including smoking history, family history and pulmonary history can be assessed to determine the next best step.
I would suggest a TB test and a follow up appt with a review of the CT scan: healthtap. Com/DosanjhMD ...Read more
TB vs scar: Nodular densities in the lung are often seen as a result of scarring. If you are concerned about TB then getting a TB skin test would be the first step. If it is negative then the nodule in the lung is not TB. If it is positive and you are not coughing then it means you have been exposed to TB but do not have active TB. If it is positive and you are coughing then you need sputum culture done. ...Read more
What is the significance of osseous density adjacent to rib in chest xray results? Should I have CT for clarification?
Osseous density: Most likely it's a benign bone island adjacent to a rib, however, this is not universal and depends on why the xray was done. You will need to discuss this case with the doc who ordered it and see what should be done next. ...Read more
Whitish spot on xray: On a chest x-ray, sometimes there are whitish spots that aren't supposed to be there in the normally dark images of the lungs. The spots are usually less than an inch wide, and often less than half-an-inch wide. Disorders that show up as a nodular density or multiple densities include infections (such as TB or other germs), fungi (such as aspergillus), inflammatory disorders, cancers, etc... ...Read more
Just had mammogram and have a nodular density requiring further investigation. Can this be cancer?
Yes,: But at least 80% of mammo recalls turn out to be nothing of concern, and of the remainder that might go to biopsy, 70-80% of those turn out benign. The odds are strongly in your favor. It is common (approx 10% of the time) to get called back for additional imaging due to a questionable abnormality on screening. ...Read more
