HI. I had a CT done of my chest when I was hospitalized with pneumonia. The Ct scan has some findings, but other than telling me to go to an Oncologist my Dr. will not elaborate on what exactly the CT scan means. IT says the following:
There is a 2.5 x 1.5 cm pleural based spicualted mass in the right upper lobe posterior segment. It may represent a primary neoplasm of the lung. A few nodular densities are seen in the lungs.
There is extensive hilar and mediastinal lymphadenopathy. There is also a 1.3 cm pretracheal lymph node of the mediastinum. One of the right hilar lymph nodes measures approximately 2 cm; on the left hilar lymph nodes measures approxiamtely 1 cm.
There is no consolidation or effusion seen.
I would really like to know in simple english what this is saying. Thank you in advance. Jane
