What Are Non Calcified Pulmonary Nodules
What does a CT with multiple left inferior cervical linfonods and pulmonary nodules with no calcifications (< 0, 5cm) means?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Lung nodule found 11/2013 docs say it begnin & it is to small to biopsy. It had calcification no signs show its Ca but still worried. Severe anxiety?
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
X-ray findings: Pulmonary nodules are shadows seen on chest xrays and CT scans that are less than 3cm in size and represent areas of solid tissue in the parts of the lung which should be only air sacs. Nodules can be active infections, scar tissue from prior infections, benign tumors, pulmonary lymph nodes or cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, very: 96% of nodules found in a study of screening ct scans were not lung cancer. While we don't know for sure what they were, its almost certain that many were granulomas, a type of scar often caused by "histo". In some areas of the country almost half the population has lung nodules detectable on a ct and histo gets blamed for many of them, with or without proof. It usually requires no treatment. ...Read more
I'm a smoker with several pulmonary nodules noncalcified have caugh always 2 nodules grew from 3mm/4mm & 5mm/6mm from april to july what's going on?
Yes if new: Some people contact TB as children and develop calcified nodes. If this is new and if you have been a long-term smoker do not fail to follow up with the doctor who discovered this because might be a malignancy. An old x-ray film could help to settle this matter. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes, but: Calcification of a lung nodule frequently indicates that it is benign in nature. It is the noncalcified nodules that are most concerning for lung cancer. And thus the noncalcified nodules that more frequently meet criteria that prompts biopsy of the nodule. Appropriate treatment of lung nodules is best done at facilities with experience ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

How common are lung nodules? Is it common for a nonsmoker to have 3 pulmonary nodules with no current illness symptoms except a cough?
Fairly common: If you took 100 people at random off the street and did a CT scan of their chest, 25 of them would have nodules. Non-smokers can have nodules. Most nodules do no cause any symptoms at all and you would never know they are there unless you had a chest CT for some reason (or abdominal CT and it was picked up on the lower lung fields) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Any smoking history or cancer? Please stick to your pulmonary doctor who knows you well, and follow the advice. Thanks. ...Read more
Pulmonologist said a lung nodule I have is benign, I still feel uneasy about his answer, should I seek a second opinion? Nodule is 2 CM calcified
Biopsy: A calcified nodule is likley benign. You need to compare thx xray with an old film of your chest if you have. Ct of the chest is helpful. If any doubt tissue biopsy will confirm the nature of this nodule. If you are not comfortable with the response nothing is wrong with getting another opinion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
