Lung Cancer

Retricular Nodular Disease



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.


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