    Small non calcified lung nodule

    I've had 2 Contrast CT scans in the past 2 weeks. I've had some breast or chest/upper arm pain and they are trying to find the reason.

    Anterior mediastinal node measuring 14x8 both times (on the chest wall)
    Told not to worry about it.

    I also had 2 pulmonary nodules found.
    One us a calcified one. Probably from pneumonia 4 years ago.

    One is non-calcified pulmonary nodule 4.3 mm. It's small but told not to worry about it.

    Should I be?

    I had the 2 CT scans, 1 MRI, Mammogram and saw 5 different Drs. All had no idea what was causing it. No follow up. My primary Dr. put me on an antispasmatic 4x a day as a last resort. It seems to be working.

    Thank you Molly. I really wanted a diagnosis but at least the pain is down to a 2. It's been over a year now and I need to just be grateful.
