Understanding CT comments???

Hi,

I had a CT scan back in December due to chest pain. The results were as follows:

Soft tissue settings showed:

An inhomogeneous thyroid gland with areas of calcification identified.  

No significant axillary lymphadenopathy.

Multiple small mediastinal lymph nodes identified.

Scattered areas of interstitial change and atelectasis in the lung fields

 

Should I be concerned at all?

Multiple peripheral bronchi show mild wall thickening. Abnormal thyroid gland which should be correlated clinically

Immunotherapy for early stage cancer

I had surgery 6 weeks ago - stage 2a adenocarcinoma.  The lower lobe of my right lung was removed.  I have yet to see an oncologist for followup (their fault- not mine) - hopefully next week.  Standard treatment at this point would be adjuvant chemotherapy.  My question is, does anyone know of any immunotherapy drugs that are approved for adjuvant treatment after surgery as an alernative to chemo for stage two cancer, and if there is any information on efficacy of such treatment.  I want to be armed with as much knowledge as I can when I see the oncologist next week (if they don't postpone

Supplies that help post surgery

I am a breast cancer survivor, but my friend's uncle was just diagnosed with lung cancer.  What are some items that any of you found useful post surgery to help yourself?  She would like to put some supplies together as gift and we would appreciate knowing what has been helpful to have on hand.

Trying not to have a meltdown! Nodules found

I'm hoping to find help bc I'm not sure the outcome will be good. I had a Ct done via ER bc my d-diner was high in Decembe.No clots but nodules were found (6,5,4 mm respectivel). So I went to see pulmonologist and he didn't think much of it and said he could tell me not to worry but he really didn't think it was anything to worry about.Also told me that he would repeat Ct in September.

Left upper lobectomy this coming Tuesday- Wednesday

Hello, I am 72 years old and have just completed the bronchcoscopy and mediastinoscopy and gotten clear results, no lymph node involvement! So I am tentatively scheduled for lobectomy next week. Right now I am waiting for the phone call with the day/date, check in time and pre-op instructions.  My mediastinoscopy incision still is swollen and sore, but I was unable to take the Norco past the first day due to horrible constipation which is  a chronic problem for me.
