Doctor insights on: Subpleural Nodule In Upper Left Lobe Of Lung

Share

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

Pleural bassed nodule at posterior aspect os mid cephalad right lower lobe of lung 7 x 4 mm. Also linear atelectasis within right midlung. Age 73?

Follow up of nodule: The linear atelectasis is nothing to worry about. The pleural based nodule sounds like a potentially benign nodule. Surveillance of a nodule of this size, however, is frequently recommended, particularly if you have a smoking history. Please sure to talk to your doctor for the appropriate steps. ...Read more

Do they give a size: for the "subpleural nodular density"? There are a litany of potential causes, from chronic to acute, from inflammatory to neoplastic, from no concern to worrisome. More specific info on the nodule and any relevant clinical history would help narrow it down. ...Read more

What do you recommend if I had a cat scan with IV dye and doctors found a 2.8 mm subpleural upper lobe nodule on my lung- just wondering what does that mean?

Incidental nodule: According to the Fleischner Society guidelines, if you are a low risk patient(nonsmoker etc..), no follow up is necessary for a nodule this size. The risk of malignancy is miniscule. If you are a higher risk patient, follow up CT in 12 months, and if no change, no further follow up. ...Read more

Ct chest adrenal nodule 1.9 CM right. Lungs demonstrate babisalar dependent atelectasis small subpleural bullae noted right up lobe trace pericardial?

Adrenal eval: Hi. The adrenal nodule needs to be evaluated. What were the Hounsfield units on the non-contrast scan of the nodule? Your endocrinologist will determine: 1) if it's producing any hormones, and 2) if it's growing. If high Hounsfield units, it needs sooner evaluation. Any hirsutism, amenorrhea, diabetes, serious high blood pressure, sweating, headache, palpitations, etc? Good luck! ...Read more

Something in left upper lobe of lung like a small ant moving. No pain. Mild fever, legs paining. Under 8 month of TB medication. Only RBC 5.8 abnormal

Anemia: Do not know what you are feeling in your lung, but if your hemoglobin is 5.8 gm/dl you need to see your doctor asap. If this is 5, 800, 000 rbc/ml then that is high and needs to be looked at since secondary erythrocytosis may occur with underlying malignancies and other conditions. Go and see your doctor.
