Probable biopsy: A spiculated mass is often worrisome for cancer. However this also could be from a prior lung infection. Your doctors may consider a needle biopsy of the mass or a pet/ct scan. It would be helpful to compare this finding with any old chest xrays or ct scans to see if this is a new mass. ...Read more

Lung (Definition)

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

Good morning Dr. I had a CT lung scan on Tuesday this week. My doctor said I have a 3.0 x1.8x2.0 cm left upper lobe mass with spiculated linear strand?

Lung mass: Unfortunately, that is a suspicious sounding mass, and unless there is some clinical history that might provide a potential explanation (e.g. certain occupational dust exposures or infections), the primary consideration for a spiculated lung mass is malignancy. Biopsy is likely the next step. ...Read more

I have a 3.5 cm. Starburst mass, in my lower right lobe of my lung, so what is next.?

Ask pulmonologist: A lung mass is always of concern. Sometimes it can be determined to be benign simply by comparing xrays or CT scans over time. Often it must be biopsied. If possible, this is done through a scope passed down the windpipe. Sometimes that won't reach and biopsy must be done through the chest wall, guided by CT scan. In special cases biopsy is done with a scope through the chest wall or surgically. ...Read more
