Found lesion in right lung


Recommended Posts

My husband is 65 yo, after liver transplant 1.5 years ago. He was complaining about chest pain for some time, has cough with phlegm (clear) shoulder and back pain - his MD would always say that it is all normal, due to his transplant etc or like chest pains would treat with some medication.

But finally he had a CT done 2 weeks ago, and they found "2.6 x 2.1 cm spiculated lesion in the right lower lobe abutting the right hemidiaphragm. The morphology of the lesion is suspicious for primary lung carcinoma". This is what it is in a report.

We went to see a doctor and he gave us 3 options: 1.wait and observe, 2. biopsy, 3. remove it. We decided to have a biopsy done.

I am trying to be positive but I am not coping with this well. Could it be something from the surgery(liver transplant, 2 recent hernia surgeries) like scar tissue or fluid? Can you tell by looking at the CT? Because the doctor said that he couldn't tell. Can it be a scar tissue? What about the morphology results? Is it accurate?

What do you think??
