Barb73 Posted June 19, 2010 Share Posted June 19, 2010 I didn't think that my recent scans would be a conversation here, but the fact is...they show a punctate 1 mm nodule in the posterior lower section of the right lower lobe of the lung. In the part of the report that numbers the findings, the nodule is described as 2 mm. It mentions that it was not previously imaged. The last imaging done was April 21, 2010, for an angiogram (neck and upper chest). Do they mean that the particular area of the lung was not previously imaged, or do they mean that the area was imaged, but the nodule wasn't evident? Life is never what we expect, or so it seems. Here I sent a note to dear Katie that so much was going on medically in the family (both sons have developed serious back issues) and my own recent issues. Never thought I would be here (my oasis for so long) this quickly discussing a lung nodule, and what it might mean. (I will call the doctor on Monday when he will be in the office.) In the interim, I knew you would give input from all of your collective experiences. Who would I ask to get the best advice - you, naturally. : ) My sister suggested that they might do a PET - or - is this a case of "watching and waiting"? Love to have any input that you guys can offer. I am not freaked out, but I am converned, of course. ....and here I thought my main concerns centered around vascular issues. Go figure. Oh well.... Love and thanks to you all. Barbara Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
