Thank you Dr
Hi... I am glad to assure you that there's nothing serious going on.
This is a common incidental finding.
Lung nodules appear as round, white shadows on a chest X-ray or computerized tomography (CT) scan. Lung nodules are usually about 0.2 inch (5 millimeters) to 1.2 inches (30 millimeters) in size.
A larger lung nodule, such as one that's 30 millimeters or larger, is more likely to be cancerous than is a smaller lung nodule.
So don't worry about 4mm nodule.I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you today!Is there anything else where I can be of assistance to you in this regard please. We can continue here until you are satisfied, simply use the reply box and let me know.Kind regards ***** ***** Sumanth Amperayani

Thank you, ***** ***** why they are sending me for an ultrasound? Do you think that the nodules in the slightly swollen lobe will be benign?
I all probabilities they should be normal.
