Today's diagnosis
My wife just got back from her doctor. She has already had a CT scan and just had a chest X ray. She noted that on her charts were the words "pulmonary nodules in the periphery of the lung field" and ordered blood and urine samples. What does that mean?

Well...it means she has nodules. The next question is what caused the nodules. It could be from infection, encapsulated foreign material, or from growth(s), which does not necessarily mean a malignancy. It sounds like her physicians are proceeding cautiously, one step at a time. Let them continue with their investigations and ask for their opinions.
