inflamatory pulmonary fibrosis lung disease

Last Aug I had chest x-rays and cat scans. Nodules were found and they seem to be growing at a rapid rate. Is this lung disease or lung cancer. Can it be both.

It can be either a lung disease or cancer. Multiple lung nodules are seen in sarcoidosis, asbestosis, silicosis, tuberculosis, Hodgkin's disease, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, and lung cancer. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
