Re: non calcified lung leison

Hi Mustwin, you don't mention what has been suggested for treatment or follow-up. 2mm is to small for PET scan to pick-up. In my case and others I've read it's normal to wait another three months and have a new CT to determine growth if any. In addition if that's the course you take I would suggest taking antibiotics two weeks prior to the next scan to rule out infection etc. More times than not these so called nodules are gone or benign. You don't mention your history and risk factors, they also come in to play. Once again though 2mm gives you time to follow again in three months. Keep us up to date, you are in our prayers, Bill in S.Jersey In addition I suggest taking Mucinex daily to loosen up any junk you may have a hard time expelling.
