No other inflammation is given, and
this might be helpful. There are a
number of things that are taken into account when a nodule is seen on chest
x-ray. This will include things like the
size, smoking history, how much it’s increased in size over a certain period of
time, etc. There is a long list and I will
not go through all of them. Nodules may
be due to a variety of reasons including old infection, old TB, active TB,
cancers, etc. You should discuss this
with your doctor and there should be a plan going forward to evaluate this
nodule. The help of a specialist might
be required depending on your risk profile and history.
