What does a CT with multiple left inferior cervical linfonods and pulmonary nodules with no calcifications (< 0, 5cm) means?

Varies: They may all be normal (if the nodes are small enough) or it may indicate a problem. Main thing: why was the ct done? Discuss with your doctor - there are many causes ranging from an infection (new or old), sarcoidosis, thyroid cancer, lymphoma, another type of cancer. One would have to examine you and see the scan to make an intelligent diagnosis. ...Read more

X-ray picked up 4mm lung nodule, possibly calcified. Could it be larger and the rest not visible on an X-ray due to non-calcification?

X-ray picked up 4mm lung nodule, possibly calcified.  Could it be larger and the rest not visible on an X-ray due to non-calcification?

Very common finding: Here in kansas city, most of us have one of more of these little nodules from having met and contained histoplasmosis. They're nothing to worry about. A lesion wasn't missed because it wasn't calcified -- i've watched radiologists at work and you can trust them. There are lesions that are so unlikely to be cancer they're best left alone. Unless your physician tells you otherwise, just watch it. ...Read more

Lung nodule: If your nodule is less than 1cm especially less than 0.5 cm, has a regular border, it's solid and pop-corn like then no reason to worry, so another thing that your doctor could do if to repeat your imagining at 6-12 months base on your risk factors. Try to relax and repeat a CT scan around Novemebr or so if your nodule was 6-8 mm and you are non-smoker. If you are smoker repeat it now. ...Read more

Get it checked,,: At this point , it's hard to say what this is but it must be checked out and followed more closely. It is very important to discuss this with your doctor, run more tests, like a possible biopsy, and initiate the most appropriate treatment because it's clear that it is progressing. Best of luck. ...Read more

9mm non calcified lung nodule... Had MRI said to be hematoma .. But it's slow growing also stated...Couldn't it be carcinoid?

9mm non calcified lung nodule... Had MRI said to be hematoma .. But it's slow growing also stated...Couldn't it be carcinoid?

Many things: Could be many things including carcinoid, cancer, arterio-venous malformation and many more. You need close follow-up and perhaps a pet scan when it gets big enough. If it continues growing, sometimes the best thing is to just take it out. Talk to your doctors! good luck! ...Read more

Had an MRI of a lung nodule that is non calcified ... Slow growing since 2001... 9mm... Radiologist made diagnoses of it being benign . How can he make such a diagnoses without truly knowing isn't a CT pet scan better to show or even a biopsy?

D/w your MD: It looks like a benign tumor--over 11 years- it grows slowly and the size is only 9mm. If this were a cancer, the growth will be way more rapid than this is. A pet scan has some degree of false negativity when the size is < 10mm. A biopsy is invasive and it's not easy to do when the size is small. Would recommend surveillance only, & quit smoking .If you smoke. (btw, ct scan is better than mri). ...Read more
