Re: Lung Nodule !! help!
Am so sorry to hear about your Mom's CXR, but there are so many reasons that nodules (even tiny ones) can be found - old inflammatory problems all the way up to cancer. But more importantly is why she went to the doctor in the first place if she dislikes going so much? Was she having any symptoms at all with breathing, heart beating fast, fatigue, etc.? Do you know what else the doctor did besides blood work? Like an EKG, give a good listen to her heart and lungs, check for swelling in her ankles, a breathing test (spirometry)? How old is she? Did she have someone else with her during the appointment? Sometimes, we hear only what we want to hear.....
Sorry to not be much help, but nodules by themselves can mean nothing......it is all part of a picture. Something like this would make anyone scared, but she really must follow up with the doctor for now!
