Pulmonary nodules

Options

Anyone here have their nhl go to their lungs?

After 9years  of remission i have 10 measurable nodules and many smaller nodules in my right lung.

Just had the scan. Radiology is going to compare to previous scans. But i see no mention of this in the past.

I'm concerned that the beast is back on the move.

    Question

    CT Scan or PET?

    Had a cold or virus recently?

    It seems that almost any chest cold has the potential to generate lung nodules. I have had several - all of which resolved on their own. I will have to check, but there is the "possibility" that being vaccinated may trigger an immune rersponse sufficient to cause nodules. Merely speculation at this point, though. There might be more reason for concern if you had the rare and poorly defined MALT lymphoma. Lacking symptoms, it may be yet another watch and wait situation, as unsatisfying as that is.

    Lungs

    only,

    About three years after I ended chemo, a scan due to shortness of breath found a small node, r lung base, maybe 5mm, never before seen in any of my many scans.  My pulmonologist said that standard protocol required that it be followed two years, with a scan about every 6 months.   Shortly thereafter, I mentioned it to my GP, and he volunteered the same information regarding the practice of following such a node two years, without me even mentioning what the pulmonologist had said.   Both doctors also added that these small tumors are extrememly common, but most people just don't know they have them, because most people do not commonly get CTs, and they also said that they are almost always benign.

    The node was still there, after the last two-year scan, never having enlarged any.   Both docs told me that lung cancer does not move slowly, and that protocol required considering it benign.  The pulmonologist also added that it was not biopsy-able, saying that it would be too small for a surgeon to ever find.

    I do not recall why I had my next CT, but it was a few years afterward, and the nodule was not visible then, and has not been seen on any CT since.   

    It is great to see you there out on the lake again !

    I'm still here.

    Hi guys....Yes, I'm still here but seldom post much, but try to read the posts weekly. All is well with me and I'm still in remission. Had blood work last week and everything looked great. This whole Covid situation has been a bummer, but I'm sure we all can agree on that. We did get the Moderna vaccine, with some reservations, and so far so good. I hope you all stay well and I'll check in more often. Sue
