Bad Cough Ct Scan Shows

Can you please explain what the test results of my lung scan means. Here is what the results says. A mildly enlarged right hilar lymph node measuring 1.4cm x 1.0 cm in size. A nonspecific subcentimer mediastinal and bilateral axillary lymph nodes. A calcified granuloma measuring 6mm in size is noted within the right lower lobe. Multiple small poorly-defined focal ground glass opacties diffusely throughout the lungs bilaterally, right more than left.

Your hilar lymph node is maybe enlarged due to metastatic cancer. Biopsy should be perform. If the histological findings result in a diagnosis of cancer, lyphadenectomy will be initiate and other treatment like radio therapy or chemotherapy. When the ground glass opacties are detect, initial monitoring for several months may be useful for excluding the presence of lung neoplasms. The calcified granuloma as a solitary pulmonary nodule usually indicates benignity(have you suffered from tuberculosis?), but also can be suspect for malignancy.
What kind of symptoms you are experiencing? Do you cough a lot? Do you find hard to breath?Do you have blood in your sputum? Do you feel chest pain?
All best to you!
