Lung Nodule (Solitary Pulmonary Nodule)

A lung nodule is a small single mass in the lungs that is usually benign.

Symptoms include coughing, coughing up blood, and shortness of breath.

Treatment

  • Supportive care

  • Watching for any changes (If there are no changes then it is most likely noncancerous or benign)

  • Followup CAT scans to monitor any changes in the nodule
