I had a chest xray done and the Dr. called yesterday saying they found a 1 mm or 1cm nodule in the botton of my right lung. I was very upset so what she told I was not comprehending, but I think she said something about the nodule being soft.
She said not to worry about this but wants a cat scan done for a better veiw. I am highly allergic to shell fish so the will do the test without contrast, will the results be the same as they would be with contrast.
I went for the xray because I am a smoker, my husband had to go also because they supected pnemonia (pneumonia), I keep thinking maybe they mixed up our xrays. I am ranting but so frightened.
But I have some questions. THe report says adrenal gland size is maintained pobably related to hyperplasia or adenoma. The posteror right paravertebral mid thorax demonstrates degenerative calcified hypertrophic spurring accounting for lateral chest xray findings. Frontal view off xray right helum vascularity accounts for chest xray of a nodule.
Imp: normal without posterior right sided nodularity, confluent and degenersative markings acount for xray findings. left adrenal gland is upper limit of normal
I am 63 and am aware that I have hypertrophy of the left ventricle.(mild)
Could you please explain these findings and also advise If I need any other investiation into any of the findings.
