Please quote your health query.
I am typing some questions please.
1. Does he have any respiratory symptoms?
2. Any fever?
3. Any unexplained weight loss or loss of appetite please?
4. Any intense cough or sputum production?
5. Can you upload the report please?
This does not seem like a sign of lung cancer.
Usually as clinicians we see such nodules all the time.
"If you need more help, please reply to continue our conversation. If you do not require further assistance, your 5-star rating (this is the only way we professionals get credited for our time and professional effort) at this time is greatly appreciated".
Did you get my response please?
No indigestion cannot cause such nodules in the lung.
It could as well be an opposing blood vessel too.
Indigestion cannot be sign of lung cancer - but unexplained loss of appetite and weight loss can be.
Coming to your 2nd question - I can tell the dark spot or nodule only if I see the image or the report please.
It could be a nodule - but lung nodules are very common in general population please.
As he does not have any respiratory symptoms - I would not consider at all.
Then you can be rest assured please.
May I request for a 5 - star positive rating so that I can get my professional credit please.
Even then - there would be the symptoms which are related to primary cancer whcih he is not having and even then there should be lung symptoms - even if it is a secondary involving the lung.
May be gastroesophageal reflux associated please.
No please as there have not been any constitutional symptoms please.
Yes - but please upload the report.
I said symptoms are important because any imaging or investigative procedure has to be interpreted in conjuncture with the clinical signs and symptoms please.
No need to panic - any lung shadow will be referred to avoid delay and nothing else.
Referral does not mean - it is bad please.
All lung shadows are usually referred please.
The burning pain is usually suggestive of indigestion.
I am replying and asking questions in another thread - please do not reply to this post.
