Hello its my first time to post a message here . Anyway, I just want to ask what if someone has been diagnosed that she has a spot on her right upper lobe? what is the indication of this? is this means that, its possible for someone that he has tuberculosis or just a simple pnuemonia. Hope you can give me more information about this topic. :d thanks a lot. :d
we have the same problem but i had spot on my lungs for more than 4 years and until now the spot is still there even though I had medication for ptb. it's quite hard for me especially in applying for job because I have to undergo chest x-ray every year. I dont know how to remove it because I take medicine for almost two year but it does not remove.
I had a routine chest X-ray done because I have mild asthma and wanted a referral to a lung Dr. He required a chest X-ray before seeing me for the first time. No big deal. I went in and got it done. The next day I got a call from my referring MD and he told me I have a 2cn spot on my right lung. So tomorrow I am to have a chest CT.
What are some of the possible outcomes? Is it always lung cancer? It is hard to be in denial since my mother died of lung cancer at the age of 50. However I am in denial at this point. My apt with the lung Dr is on 4/28.
I had a chest CT done and it showed a spot of 3cn. A panel of radiologist decided it was a cyst and not cancer. However the pulmonologist insist that it is a fungis. My refering Dr says I am too healthy to have a fungis in my lungs. So I am in the middle and refusing treatment for a fungis till it can be proven that it really is a fungis. I have since had another chest X-ray (six weeks out from the first one) and the "spot is unchanged). Will go back in 3 months for another chest X-ray.
