I recently had a CT scan of the chest done to follow up on generalized lymphadenopathy for 3 months , it noted as follows
"There is mediastinal lymphadenopathy.
There is a 2.1 x 1.2 cm prevascular node on image number 2 - 104. There is a 1.6 x 1.1 cm node just above the left pulmonary artery. There is a left paratracheal node of 1.4 x 1.3 cm on image 2 - 105. There is subcarinal lymphadenopathy of 2.3 x 1.3cm AND There is minor scarring at the apex of the right lung. There is an irregular nodule centrally in the right apex of 1 x 2.9 cm which may represent scarring but a small irregular mass lesion cannot be excluded" just wondering if this would anything to be concerned about, waiting to see a chect specialist in the next few weeks.
Lung nodules as I understand them can be nothing to worry about, however they should be followed up by regular CT scans at 3, then 6 then 9 months to show any changes. No change is what your hoping for. What is your history, age? Smoker? things like this are all part of it. Scaring could be from a previous bout with Pneumomia (sp). I would not worry myself to death over lung nodules, however I would not just let them go without follow up CT scans.
