Snickpea Posted March 24, 2017 Share Posted March 24, 2017 Hi, my mom just had a Ct scan last night. We went to the doc this morning. He said she had 1 mass and 3 nodules on right lung. I asked for a copy of the report. It seems very concerning. I was wondering if you guys could have a look and let me know what exactly it all is. she has a pet scan scheduled for Monday. thanks lung parenchyma: There is a large mass centered in the left hilum. It measures 5.5 cm at the level of the carina transversely. It extends superiority and inferior you. There is a 2nd contiguous mass seen inferiority. It is uncertain as to whether this is mediastinal parenchyma. It measures 4cm transversely. This large lobulated contiguous mass narrows the posterior inferior left pulmonary vein and the lower lobe pulmonary artery on the left. This is highly suspicious for neoplasm. Tissue sampling is suggested. The left lower lobe bronchus is also affected. There is a left lower lobe consolidation possibly representing postobstructive atelectasis. The right lung demonstrates three nodular densities. There is a 6mm nodular density seen in the right lower lobe on image 66 of series A2. Two ovoid nodular densities are seen measuring 6 and 4mm on image 65 within the right major fissure probably representing intrapulmonary lymph nodes. Mesiastinium: The paranchymal mass described above extends superiorly almost to the thoracic inlet lying to the left of the trachea and anterior to the esophagus. There is also a subcarinal extension of the mass. These finding may represent contiguous adenopathy. Hila: See above the mass described involves the left hilum. There is a 6mm right hilar lymph node. Abdomen: There is a left para-aortic node measuring 1.2 x 1.1cm seen on image of series A1. IMPRESSION: Large left hilar/mediastinal/infrahilar mass as described above. Findings are highly suspicious for malignancy. PET scanning to determine extent of disease and tissue sampling are suggested. Thank you for any help you can give.
