looking for answers

My husband was just in an accident, so the er did ct scans. finding a small noncalcified pulmonary nodule in the rt mid lung, approximately 4mm in size. Should we be worried. He is 40 and a non-smoker in good health.

Re: looking for answers

Don't look for answers from uninformed people. Talk to your Dr. and have him explain the radiologist report in words that you can understand. They sometimes forget that you didn't go to medical school. If you aren't happy with his explanation, go for another opinion from someone else. I have nodules from bouts of chronic bronchitis, and pneumonia. Does that fit into your husband's physical make-up? There are too many other answers, to be exact. Make the appointment and see the Dr. Peggy
