Hello, doctor. What does a solid small nodule focus in the middle lobe of the right lung mean
Solid nodule in the right lung refers to the high-density round like shadow in the middle lobe of the right lung seen on chest film or lung CT. The most common cause of solid nodule in the middle lobe of the right lung is pulmonary infection. Of course, it may also be old lesions, pulmonary sarcoidosis or pulmonary tuberculosis. Very few may be lung malignancies.
Hello, if there are nodules locally, we need to make further judgment first. Under the following general circumstances, nodules are considered to be benign lesions. In this case, we can do an enhanced CT to check. If you don't feel at ease, you can also puncture.
If this solid nodule is smooth compared with the surrounding tissue and has no obvious burr feeling, it should be considered as a benign dishonest nodule, which may be caused by tissue fibrosis in the later stage of inflammation. However, if there is obvious burr feeling, it should be considered as a manifestation of tumor.
