My husband is in Korea with the Army. He had a chest x-ray and they found a lump in the top part of his lungs and bottom part of his traec. They also stated his white cell count was high. I am not sure of how high the level was. He also had an ECG the a result stated a marked sinus bradycadia abnormal rythm. He had a chest x-ray 6 months ago and there was no sign of this. Please help me figure out what this could mean.
I will try to make this as breif as I can. My father has had some health problems for the past 10 to 15 yrs, including a minor stroke, he's had several colon pollops removed and currently has another one that needs to be removed, he had a kidney removed a few years ago, and on April 8, 2002 he had a 5 bypass heart surgery. Dad is 78 yrs old. For the past few weeks they have sent him back and forth from Dr Office to hospital.. for a lump on his side...
The differentiating symptom is with metastatic lung cancer patients have symptoms related to the primary cancer in addition to lung symptoms along with general symptoms of fatigue, weight loss and decreased appetite. this could be a primary in the colon causing a metastasis to lungs and symptoms need to be correlated. The lump on lung could be due to copd. Multiple pulmonary nodules are commonly encountered in metastatic disease of the lungs.
My grandma cough for 3 months and one day she felt breathless and was taken to the hospital for x-ray. The x-ray shows a lump in the lung, but the doctor did not say what size it is. So we made an appointment with a specialist. My grandma has recent symptoms like breathless, couldn't walk for long without feeling out of breath, vomiting, pain at the chest area. She's 80 plus this year and she's a smoker for about 60 years. What are the possibilities that it's lung cancer she's suffering from?
Hi hwillman, If my memory serves me right, a lump in the lung does not necessarily mean cancer. I would post this question in the "Respiratory Disorders" board, so a medical professional can also see this question and answer it. To find the board, click on forums at the top of your screen. Good luck !
A lump can also be a "nodule" which is NOT cancer. My husband smoked 4 packs a day for 40 yrs, and three yrs ago an Xray was "suspicious", he then had a CT scan which showed a "nodule", but could not tell if it was cancer. He then saw a Lung Specialist and was given a "bronchoscope" (don't know if I spelled it right) a biopsy was done of this "nodule" and it was BENIGN. He had to have follow up CT scans six months apart for the next 3 yrs.
I've also been suffering with chest pain and have an area on chest that goes in to a lump when coughing (Dr thinks this is due to muscles between ribs). Cough is practically gone and only blood/bit of wheezing occasionally in morning now. Also saw ENT Dr and he said everything seems ok other than deviated septum and a bit of blood in nose, which may be causing blood. I'm 8 month pregnant and I'm just getting really worried that symptoms are not going away, even after 4 courses of antibiotics.
I wake up 3 and 4 times per night gasping for air. It also feels like I have a lump of phlem in my throat when I swallow. PFT test have shown abnormal twice for mild restriction. Doctors have since did CT Scan/ultrasound/stress test/ arterial blood test. All came back normal. Any ideas on what is causing this restriction or further testing that I could have done.
possible a lymh node may be obscured by the pleural effusion. Scarring is seen in the right lung apex. no abnormal increased uptake. There is no longer any significant uptake in the rectum. Impression: ( 1 ) New area of increased uptake corresponding to left pleural-based opacity. This could represent a metastasis or possibly an infectious or inflammatory process. Attention to this area is recommended. ( 2 ) Increased uptake adjacent to the aorta in the left lung.
0mm nodule in the medial right upper lung . What does this mean in english please. I don't understand all the medical terms and am a 38 year old mother of 5.

He broke his ribs and fractured some vertebrae in a combat training and during an examination on his ribs, they discovered a lump in one of his lungs. Is it possible this could have been caused by some of the damage to his ribs and spine? He is 33- always non-smoker, wasn't raised with smokers. I'm just nervous for him. Anyone have any kind of an answer or just some comforting info? He's my hero.

Hi, I can surely understand how stressful it must be for you to have discovered a lump in your axilla area,after your last bout with lung cancer.Of course I cannot tell you not to worry,but please keep in mind that there are many causes of underarm lumps, and the vast majority are not harmful.This could be a sebaceous cyst, a lipoma (fatty tumor), a cyst etc..
I am 32 years old and have recently found a lump in my breast. My doctor sent me for a mammogram and ultrasound which both came back normal. The results said "seen brightly echogenic fibroglandular appearing architecture adjacent to isoechoic adipose, no cyst or focal solid lesion identified". The area around the lump stays very sore.
When my lung nodules were found, there were 3 in the right lung and each was app. 3 mm. Since I was in the hospital, I saw a pulmonary specialist and he said to wait 3-4 months for a repeat ct. It seems to me that the doctors like to wait at least 3 months to see if there is any growth from the original nodule size. Are you to see a pulmonary specialost in 3 months? If you do not want to wait, look around to find a different specialist who can see your wife sooner.

Hi, A recent CT scan revealed a 2-3mm nodule in my right lung. I am a 30 year old and have probably smoked one pack of cigarette at the most. I haven't smoked in the last 3 to 4 years at all. My doctor tells me that in Midwest it is common to see a 2-3mm nodule due to an infection. I have a little bit of cough every morning (especially right after brushing my teeth) but that has been there for a very long time. No blood in cough or no respiratory infections like bronchitis or pneumonia.
It changes your life from that instant on, forevermore. In my particular case, I have since found that it most probably is a lung infection that has caused 2 nodules in my lungs, but it is still not confirmed. But what is confirmed is that I have a different outlook on life than I had before. I used to be a highly driven businessman, working long hours, and flying here, there and everywhere. Now my priority in life is my family, work comes in a distant second.
It is very sensitive to the touch and he has pain in his chest and his back. My husband had lung cancer in 1984. His lung, on this side (left) was removed. Never had a problem. His physician has scheduled him for CT scan in 10 days. Is that soon enough? Would he be better off with an MRI? He had abdominal surgery 7 weeks ago and he had chest exrays and CT scan. No indication at that time of a problem. He does have a lot of pain. Taking Oxycodone. Should these tests be done sooner?
A cat-scan showed a lump in my lung about one inch in diameter? I am going to get a pet-scan but the blood tests showed no abnormalities in the cell counts. Also the lump showed no signd of blood flow in the cat-scan which I guess means it wouldn't be a tumor. Does anyone know what a lump that size would mean if it is not one of these things. Can a lump be just that? A meaningless lump?
Hi, I was diagnosed with having a lump in the top of my lung in March. I have have a chest xray, MRI scan, 2xCT scans, CT scan with dye, ultrasound and a PET scan and numerous blood tests. The PET scan came back showing an abnormality. All my specialist has told me is that the lump had grown in size in 4weeks and the lump has a hole in the middle of this. I got told it could be malignant or maybe not, could be infection maybe not. They are really unsure.
my son is 18 months old and from when he was 3 weeks old hes always been weezy and bad chest infections, so then he got a chest x-ray done and it showed a shadow on the bottom of his lung, then he went to see an ENT specalist and he said by reading through all his notes he finks it could be a lump in his lung so hes going to do the camera and find out what it is, so im really worried.. what could this lump be???
Four years ago, I was told I had five lung nodules ranging in size. Since that time, I have had three other CT scans to monitor the nodules. Each scan shows the nodules to have increased to approximately 7mm. The largest nodule is located at the top of the right lung. A recent x-ray confirms pneumonia and pleurisy.
