I am 30 years old(female) , and I recently had a CT scan of my lower abdomen concerning scar tissue/colon etc. Anyway, while they were doing the scan they picked up a 10mm nodule(sounds big) on my lower right chamber of my lung towards my back that wasn't calcified. I am so hoping that this isn't cancer. I go back for another scan of the entire lungs and then to a lung specialist. Does anyone have any input? I'm not a smoker, but my mom was. I'm pretty healthy overall. I've been having some pain in my mid back between my shoulder blades and in my shoulder. My neck always bothers me( I teach school and grade papers all the time). My right arm aches sometimes, but I thought it was a pinched nerve. Sometimes it hurts to take really deep breaths like I have a hiatal hernia again. I have had a deep cough the last few days. It makes my chest sore down deep. I sound like a barking seal. I am really freaked about this. Thanks for your input..
I had a ct scan done on my lower abdomen as well and they found three modules one was calcified. They had me do a full scan and found acouple more 1 was calcified one was not. I think the biggest 6MM. I'm told that these could be from earlier infections. I'm hoping since some are calcified that hopefully that's the case.You can have modules all over your body from infections. I'm having another ct scan done in three months and if it hasn't changed then that is good news, but better news is when it hasn't changed in 6 months as long cancer usually doubles by then. Am I scared? Yup haven't sleept in three days. PS. If there is no growth or if it doesn't calcify or just go away, they do scans for two years then they stop. Good luck keep intouch.
