Avatar n tn I have been prone to pneumonia and bronchitis through out my life. In March, I had a ct scan of my lungs which revealed emphysema in the bottom lobe of my right lung and a 3.5 cm mass in the upper/middle lobe of my right lung. I went to see a pulmonologist who requested lab work, a chest x-ray, and scheduled a bronchoscopy for the mass. The lab work results revealed that the emphysema was caused by having MZ phenotypes from AAT deficiency.

940391 tn?1255758976 Nicole I am no doctor - but I have done lots of research on Nodules - from what I have read - most lung nodules are benign. I would not worry - sounds like you doctor is right - beneign lung nodules - I also have many scattered nodules - and if these were going to kills me - I should be dead by now..........mine are also up to 7mm .... small nodules are almost always benign..........stop worrying and enjoy your life. Life is precious - we need to enjoy what we have ........
Avatar n tn Hi, I'm looking at a possible lung cancer (never smoked, though, or been around smokers; it was picked up when I had pneumonia last Nov & hasn't changed despite antibiotics). May 5th, the lung surgeon is planning to do a wedge resection, and if necessary, a lobectomy.
Avatar n tn He has gone now in November and the xray appears to have a white haze over the lower part of his lung. (The lobectomy was performed on the upper right lung). Could this be recurrent cancer. The doctor doesn't think so but wants him to have a CAT Scan done to rule it out. What are the chances of this type of cancer recurring so quickly? He was a smoker for 50 years but quit about a year ago after the diagnosis.

Avatar f tn Tha Doctor's have done scan's and x-rays on her and have told us that she has a damaged lung due to pneumonia. Fluid is coming out of the lung, to clear it, they have inserted a tube.

Should we go ahead with it,. The doctors are waiting for our response.
Avatar f tn my husband just under went surgery to remove scar tissue from his lung and chest, his surgeon told us it was caused by pneumonia. the operation required an incision from the front of his chest to his back. the surgeon also commented that it was unusual for an incision so long but the scarring was quite extensive and that the scar had attached his lung to his chest wall. my husband had a triple by-pass about two years ago.
Avatar m tn The X-ray shows a minimal PTB upper lower lung and a coin pure-white formed which is the pneumonia but then because of financial problems I had to wait for less 1 month to confine myself in the hospital. So, the day came. A lot of observations and gone through the operation where my back left lung gets injected for the fuild inside it to decrease. It was successful, then there my 6-month medical treatment for my minimal PTB started.
