Lung Cancer

Retricular Nodular Disease

09/20/2011

Question:

I am trying to find out exactly what retricular nodular disease is and what might cause it.

I have had my left upper lobe removed due to cancer (Adenocarcinona), along with a harvest of local Lymph nodes. No radiation or chemical treatment followed.

Is or could the cancer be related to retricular nodular disease?

Thank you.

Answer:

It's usually not due to lung cancer. Usually, it's a sign of possible lung infection or inflammation.
