My wife is a healthy 34yrs old, non-smoker, no second hand smoke inhalation, just gave birth to four months ago and a stay home mom from ASIA.
She did a routine checkup for PPD testing and nurse that read the result as positive with 9mm indunation.
We were asked to do a Chest X-Ray, the X-ray result show abnormality on the Upper Right Lobe, and a CT scan we recommended for further evaluation to check for TB. We went for a CT scan and the result are as follows.
Findings: There is an irregular marginated peripheral right upper lobe nodule corresponding to the opacity seen on checst x-ray, measuring 10x14mm. There is no evidence of calcification or cavitation within this nodule. There is some mild adjacent patchy linear opacity. Remaining Lung fields are clear. There is no evidence of pleural effusion. There is no evidence of endobronchial or endotracheal lesion.
There is no evidence of medistinal or hilar adenopathy. No calcified medistinal or hilar lymp nodes are identified. The thyroid gland is small and heterogeneous and is partially visualized. There is no evidence of axillary adenopathy.
Visualized portions of the upper abdomen are unremarkable
There is no evidence of worrisome lytic or blastic bony lesion.
Her Pulmonologist asked for TB Blood testing. we are still waiting for the result. My wife is feeling worrisome. Does any of this sounds like a Lung Cancer?
Thank you so much for taking a look into this.
