1.7 cm solid nodule within the left lateral basilar segment of the left lower lobe with pleural extension, max SUV 1.97 at 60 minutes and 2.23 at 120 minutes which is 12% increased which mitigates the likelihood malignancy. Findings are not typical of malignancy
27-year-old male with previously identified pulmonary nodule which was NOT PET avid. Unclear etiology. Patient was previously instructed to repeat labs as there is identification of atypical lymphocytes noted on his CBC with differential, the patient has not repeated these labs. Was able to call the patient today, instructed him to get the labs as ordered, to include CBC with differential and peripheral smear, I have given him contact information to get a hold of me in the event that he has issues doing so. Patient informed me that he was currently in a field exercise, again I reiterated the importance of getting these labs to rule out pathology.
This is my pulmonologists interpretation of it. ( I got the bloodwork done all came back normal)
malignancy. Findings are not typical of malignancy
