Gillianmillian Posted April 2 Share Posted April 2 Hello, I’m new here and hope I can get some advice and support. I live in Germany, so sorry in advance for my English. I’m a male 58years nonsmoker, high blood pressure, asthma and allergies. I have had a dry cough, hoarseness and urgent to clear my throat, shortness of breath for over 2 years. At the beginning of this year I went to a Pulmonologist to get it checked and got diagnosed with asthma which is now treated with medication. My doctor still ordered a CT scan which Showed 5 solid lung nodules The nodules are between 4-5mm in size, One of the nodule is spiculated, next Ct scan will be in 6 months. The nodules are too small to do biopsy or Petscan, so the approach is to just watch and wait for now.I‘ve done alot of research and all studies and data I’ve found, state that Spiculated lung nodules are malignant in 90% of the time, So the likehood of if it being cancer is very high, I’m very concerned. My Ct report Findings: 1 subpleural laterobasal lung nodule on the right 1 lung nodule is spiculated and in the middle lobe on the right 2 completely calcified nodules upper lobe on the right 1 Atypical perifissual nodule, 1 micronodule on the right 1 typical perifissual upper lobe on the right No detectable enlarged lymph nodes mediastinally No pleural effusion. No bone changes suspected of being malignant Impression: A total of 5 solid lung nodules on the right under 5 mm, 2 which are perifissural, one typical and one atypical - further CT control in 6 months Two calcified lung nodules in the right upper lobe, most likely granulomas Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
