I am 59 and I smoked for 10 or 11 years. 1 pack aday.. I quit a year ago. Now this. thank you
The referral to a lung doctor was brilliant but I think you should have that consult as early as possible. We usually see this kind of CT scan in patients who may have lung malignancy and waiting for May seems too long. I suggest you facilitate your appointment so that you can be worked up further and faster, and so that whatever the outcome, it can be treated early and promptly.
The liver function tests can be due to a fatty liver or with your background having all of these lung findings, it could very well be something else.
I hope you get to consult with your lung doctor as soon as possible. Regards and God Bless...
thank for the reply will they do a biopsy , or what other work up or should i just talk to an oncology dr.
is it possible this situation showed as a result of a cancer somewhere else . Or could it have just started in the lung.//
my daughter was diagnosed with scaradois several week ago and has MRI, CAT Scans today she was told that her upper and lower lungs has calcified but her kidneys tested fine. The doctor says she is treatable but said nothing about testing for maligency should she be worried.
I have blebs disease in both lungs,last year I had a collapsed lung and had about 20% removed.
They found a 4mm nodule and a 5mm nodule on my left lung which have stay the same.
now they have found subcentimeter lymph nodes
My breathing has turned for the worse in the past month,My liver ensymes are elevated.
what should I do next?
