CT Lung Scan Results

I have 4 lung nodules from 4mm – 8mm in size they are considered small at this point.

The first lung scan showed 3 nodules the second one showed 2 and it said one was resolved and this one showed 4 but listed two as new ones.

I have always loved reading anything about medical stuff and sometimes that just ends up scaring me more. Especially when I read the descriptions of the nodules.

There is no way to know what they are until they can be biopsied. Lung nodules are not necessarily cancer.
Lung nodules have to be 1cm before they can be biopsied due to the dangers associated with them.

The pulmonologist reminded me that lung cancer stage 1 is very curable that is why we are doing these CT Lung scans this was my 3rd one in 1 1/2 years.

He changed my morning inhaler to a stronger version and now its morning and evenings this is because I have been experiencing some more shortness of breath.

I felt pretty good about this appointment he is so good to answer my list of questions and explain things to me and he never rushes you which is a big plus.

He is ordering some more testing and wants to see me again in the month.

Pulmonologist

I went to my first ever pulmonologist a few weeks ago and I really do not know a whole lot. I had a CT lung scan a few weeks before that.

In two more months, I will have another CT lung scan to recheck some things that were found on the first one.

I will also be doing some breathing test to check on some lung issues that were found.

Things show up on these scans that require further testing, rescanning and more evaluations with other tests. In other words, one test leads to another then to another.

Needless to say, I left there with an inhaler ( Symbicort) the first one I have ever had and very few answers as far as the CT lung scan report goes.

I am not a patient person and having to wait to see what is up really drives me crazy.
