Does inflammatory vs malignancy in the remarks of CT scan of lungs with 203cc solid mass mean its cancer?
No: No. It is at times difficult to differentiate inflammation/infection from a malignancy on ct. Pet/ct may more helpful where there is suspicion. However, this may also limited in differentiating infection/ inflammation from cancer. That being said, imaging does not arrive at a pathological diagnosis. When possible, any suspicion of lung cancer requires pathological confirmation through a biopsy. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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

Ct angiogram shows non calcified opacity on middle lobe 4mm. Appearance of benign intrapulmonary lymph node on lung with no pleural abnormalites.
Opacity: The question to your doctor should be - is this an incidental pulmonary nodule or something more concerning. If the ct angio was done for something completely unrelated, and it was a true incidental finding, some guidelines say that under a certain size (4mm) for low risk patients (no smoking, etc), then no follow up is needed. Otherwise a biopsy or interval imaging followup is appropriate. ...Read more
Chest CT scan subsegmental atelectasis versus fibrosis in medial margins of r \l upper lobes abutting mediastinum was f/u for 6mm ground glass nodule
The fibrosis and : Atelectasis isnt anything to worry about, just some lung tissue collapsed on itself and scarring. The ground glass nodule is something that may need longer term follow up to make sure it doesnt grow. These can be due to something called atypical adenomatous hyperplasia (aah). ...Read more
What does endobronchial carcinoma left upper lobe complete atelectasis is suspeted 7 CM left hilar mass highly suspious for endobronchial carcinoma?
Not sure of ?: It sounds as f you are asking about what this cancer is. What you are describing sounds like a stage 3a or maybe a stage 2b nonsmall cell lung cancer. Best treatment would depend upon some more information needed. It will be dependent on if it is considered surgically resectable or not. It will require chemotherapy and possibly radiation as well. Curable but serious. Good luck and best wishes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
CT scan shows "mass of calcified lymphadenopathy in the anterior mediastinum", what does that mean? Previous history ('90-'92) of stage 4 hodgkins, tr
A CT finding of a, stellate 1.6 x 1.1 CM subpleural right anterior segment upper lobe nodule is present. Additional 2mm middle lobe nodule is cancer?
Could Be: The right upper lobe nodule sounds most suspicious and may require some sort of biopsy to be sure. Comparison with any older imaging studies might add more information. The 2mm nodule is too small to assess and would likely be put under surveillance. Hope things work out for the best. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Questionable small density at the left upper lung field and linear atelectasis is superimposed on the left hilum.What? Cancer? Remainder lungs clear.
Possible: The possibility of cancer is almost always there. The risk depends on the smoking history, family history of cancer, the size of the mass, etc.. Smokers are at higher risk. Certain cancers are familial. Larger spots and those with ragged edges are more likely to be cancerous. Consultation with oncologist or lung specialist may be considered.. ...Read more
Multilobulated pulmonary mass w/calcifications in left upper lobe. Neoplastic disease vs inflammatory/infectious process. rule out metastatic disease ?
In general...: IN GENERAL, a multilobulated mass is more likely malignant, one with calcifications is less likely. As in much else, size matters, with bigger being more worrisome. If you're smoker, more likely malignant, if from place of endemic TB or histoplasmosis, risk of chronic infection rises. You'll need to be evaluated by a pulmonologist, who will very likely recommend biopsy. ...Read more
Not necessarily: An infiltrate seen on a cxr or ct scan can be cancer or infection (pneumonia) or inflammation. It is by no means definitive for cancer. If it looks suspecious enough on the scan, the next steps are further imaging or direct biopsy of the abnormality. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is the likelihood of lung cancer when CT scan shows pre-tracheal, subcarinal and right hilar lymphadenopathy. If cancer, is it stage 4 already?
Lung cancer: What did the CT show about the lungs and other organs?, That is usually the criteria for stage IV. Stage IV you have lung cancer in either more than 1 lung or lobe and another part of the body(liver, bone). Having cancer in lymph nodes can be stage II or III depending on size of the lung mass 3 cm. Biopsy would show cancer in lymph nodes, as they can also be enlarged due to inflammati ...Read more
Several posibilities: Often this may be due to infections like histoplasmosis (which is quite frequent in the mid-west), but the best thing to do is to have this thoroughly evaluated by a pulmonary (lung) expert. It may require bronchoscopy after appropriate imaging studies, and possibly other procedures, but the importance of establishing a firm diagnosis cannot be over-estimated. Good luck. ...Read more

What's a 14mm noncalcified left upper lobe parenchymal pulmonary mass adjacent atelectasis.Left upper lobe bronchus/hillar peribronchial cuffing/thick?
Mgt PHI: The imaging may be uploaded to an inbox consultation. From your description I would suggest a follow up imaging study with an evaluation with additional information. Have you smoked? Is there a family history of cancer? Have you been tested for any infections? The mass is probably impinging on the airway and causing areas of collapse, called atelectasis. This area is prone to secondary infection ...Read more
There is a lobulated soft tissue mass noted in the para aortic region involving the ports hepatis. The mass is inseparable from the head of the pancreas. This lobulated mass measures approx 10.8 x 8.2 CM axially.. What does this (likely) indicate? Cancer
Possibilities: A lot depends on the age of the patient. If it is a young woman, the most likely cause is called a pseudopapillary tumor. These generally have a good outcome. Other possibilities include pancreatic adenocarcinoma, neuroendocrine tumors, or benign processes like pancreatic rests, duodenal diverticuli, or cysts (pancreatic or biliary). Depending on the appearance, a biopsy is often helpful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
