CT scan showed a pleural based nodule .4cm on right lung. What does pleural based mean?
Also, I have lymph nodes less than 10mm in size in the precarinal region. Doctor says will follow-up with another CT in 6mos to 1yr. How worried should I be? I had a cold when the CT was done, don't know if that make any difference.
(I am a smoker trying to quit and I was also diagnosed with osteoporosis)
