there.
Thank you question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
The report mentions subpleural node or nodule in the lower lobe I think.
Pleura is the covering of the lungs.
Sub pleural means beneath the covering of the lungs.

So part of lung right ?

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 2 years ago.
Not exactly part of the lung exactly but the covering of the lung.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

So it's not the peritoniun?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

They don't mention is the peritonium clear in the report ? Does that mean it is ?

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 2 years ago.
No, peritoneum is the covering of the intestines.
Pleura is the covering of the lungs.
I would appreciate it if you rate me before we proceed.
