Chest CT says subcentimeter diameter parenchymal densities what does that mean also faint 6mm ground glass in medial aspect l upper lobe is stable?

Follow up: Small nodules are hard to diagnose as biopsy can miss them. Furthermore, it seems there are several in your case. Depending on the size things like pet scan can give us clues but usually we follow with another imaging to see if they are changing or growing.

I test this morning and the results showed a single line, means negative. But when I got home just now, I found there is a faint line appeared...

Could be yes and missed early or could be no and dye just eventually appears. ...Read more
