Lung Biopsy/Findings--MEDICAL INFO SOUGHT--

Abd/Pelvic CT Scan 6/30/09, reports 7.5cm non-calcified pulmonary nodule subpleural region posterolateral L lobe. Referral to Pulmonologist, take in CD & discover error on report,7/30. Quit Smoking next am. 7.5cm is actually 8mm.  CT of Chest performed: confirms 8mm w/ short-term stability suggesting a dx of granuloma. Biapical emphysematous blebbing & pleural scarring of minimal degree.

I live alone & have been undergoing medical testing for the past 2 months. Recently went on 2 week vacation to east coast & felt better.

Symptoms include: weight loss, dysphagia, allergies to entire "southwest" panel including dust, constant rhinitis, etc. It is not on my bucket list to die, but I am SCARED. Bx scheduled in 4 days.

Is there a doctor in the house who can provide detailed information regarding granuloma?

Is there any possiblity, that I may have Wegener's Granulomatosis?
