Lung Cancer

Lung nodules



Sir,Over the past year I have 2 ct scans and one pet scan of the chest,results are showing new 5 mm nodules in right upper and left lower lungs.I have been experiencing shortness of breath and also wheezing when lying down for about 6 months now.I have had a breathing test and nuclear stress test which both were negative.I am a 4 year Malt Lymphoma survivor.Should I be concerned about these lung changes or would you say its asthma? My Next CT is due in August.Thanks Doc...


Your symptoms are unlikely related to these small nodules.  If they do not change on serial CT's, they are likely benign.

I hope this helps.
