After diagnosis with C.T scan Abdomen results were liver cyst - small left lung base nodule, my mother have pain symptoms every four days pls advice?
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 diagnosed with a 3 mm lingular nodule probably representing granuloma. Mild fibrotic changes at the left lung base. Is this something I should worry about?
Need to follow up: Follow up checks with X-Ray /CT scan is advised to be certain that it does not grow in size. Most likely it is benign in which case it will remain inactive and not grow in size. Unless you have watched/monitored it for the next 2-3 years, there will remain some concern that it could be an early form of lung Cancer although it is not very likely to be. ...Read more
Left lung base nodule elongated at least 1.6x0.8 CM with multiple satellite nodules with reticulonodular densities. Not there on previous scans. Found on ER visit for pain in that area. Significant?
From nothing: To an early something. The anxiety you are experiencing is given as a main reason to not do screening ct's in smokers. 3 mm is too small to worry about. If it were me, i'd re-ct in 6 months to a year to check change in size. You can google the nlst - national lung screening trial. Do you smoke? Time to stop if yes. Good luck. ...Read more

28/f. Subplueral lung nodule in peripheral base. Accidental finding on ct. Quit smoking 4 years ago. What's the chance its cancer? I'm petrified.
Some chance,, : Because you've had a history of smoking there is some chance that this can be cancer. However, you're young at 28 years and it takes a long history of smoking for this to develop, and the location is on the periphery which is not a common place for lung cancer from smoking to show up in. It may be something else that isn't related to smoking. It's best to see your dr. ; possibly get it biopsied. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Many possibilities: This is a "spot" in the lung where there's a concentration of solid tissue. The spot may represent a focus of past or present immune activity against a particular germ such as TB or histoplasmosis, or a growth of some type. Most turn out to be harmless, but listen carefully to your doctor(s) re the best and safest way to evaluate the nodule. ...Read more
