1. What should I do if I grew up without treatment in the lung nodule 3 mm?
follow -up is also a treatment. Now there is no way to treat nodules. The only way is to remove it. Therefore, follow -up is to observe the sign of whether it becomes larger within a controlled time, and if there is any, consider resection. Of course, there are no doctors that can make you miss the opportunity for treatment and once in two years. Most of them are from 3 to 6 months to 1 year.
2. Small leaf leaf nodules in the right lungs, about 3 mm in diameter, and clear boundaries. Need to deal with it? Thank you!
Hello, because the volume of the nodules in the lungs is too small and has no characteristic, it is often difficult to determine. Most of them are judged by regular review. Most of the nodules are fibrous stoves or inflammatory nodules, and may be the early lesions of tumors, but things like you should be benign. Pay attention to review in the future.
What should I do if there are nodules in the lungs?
Lung nodules are a very common symptom of lung. In today’s life, lung nodules have become the heart disease of many people, and the prevalence of pulmonary nodules has also increased year by year. Now that there are so many people with lung nodules, mainly because the number of people who actively perform physical examination screening, and now the resolution of the instrument to detect the pulmonary nodules has also increased, and the number of people in the lung nodules is well understood. What should I do after discovering that my lungs have nodules? Is there a danger of three millimeters of lung nodules? Next, I would like to ask Tong Xiaoping, deputy chief physician of Guangdong Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, to answer related questions.
What should I do if there are nodules in the lungs?
Patients with nodules in the lungs should seek medical treatment in time. First of all, you don’t have to panic, but you cannot ignore the condition. It is recommended to go to the respiratory or thoracic surgery of the specialist hospital as soon as possible. The specialist will determine the inspection method and treatment plan according to the nodule form, size, and change trend. If necessary, you can adopt cortex lung biopsy or sputum bacterial examination to further clarify the nature of nodules and determine the treatment plan.
Is the 3mm lung nodule dangerous?
Whether the 3mm lung nodule is dangerous depends on the changes and risk factors of the condition. The nodules below 3mm are tiny nodules. Patients who find that tiny nodules do not have to panic. Regular reviews and tracking nodules can effectively control the condition. For patients with multiple risk factors, such as smokers, those who are over 40 years old, and those who have a family tumor history, they need to pay attention and follow up.
If the patient finds that his lung nodule grows bigger, there is no need to panic, you only need to do surgical resection. The current lung nodule surgery is a minimally invasive surgery. The impact on the lung function after surgery is relatively small. Generally speaking, it can work and study normally three months after surgery. Depending on the position and size of the nodules, the lung nodule surgery is divided into pulmonary lobe resection, pulmonary section resection, sub -segment resection, wedge resection, and so on. Some patients will find the pathology of the lung nodules in situ in situ after surgeryThere is no need to worry about cancer or micro -infiltration of cancer. The in situ cancer and micro -infiltrated cancer in the development of the lung nodule are very high, which will basically not affect the normal survival of the patient.
3, 2 mm lung nodules, how to treat
Passing the changes in nodules in the chest, and if necessary, you can be a clear diagnosis of pulmonary nodule puncture
Fudan University Affiliated Oncology Hospital-Radiation Treatment Department-Zhao Weixin Indications
1. You need to observe regularly. For tiny nodules are nodules with a diameter of u003c5mm, you need to observe regularly. Early observation, it is recommended to review regularly for 3-6 months. After a regular review, if the nodules have not changed significantly, after three years of observation, it is recommended to conduct regular review of 6-12 months;
2. During the observation process, it is found that the nodules have significantly increased, or there are malignant viciousness. Performance. For example, there are obvious divisions, which are significantly increased in solid ingredients, or pleasant features such as pleural, etc. It is recommended to actively surgical treatment. At present, the surgical treatment of nodules is generally used in relatively large central hospitals. Therefore, the trauma is relatively small, the recovery after surgery is relatively fast, and the long -term prognosis effect is better. Like a summary cause of early lung cancer, the survival rate of five years in the long period, the total survival rate is relatively high, about 80%, especially the proliferation of adenoma -like adenoma -like hyperplasia. These five -year survival rate is relatively Higher, about 95%, or even 100%.
4. In the lung nodule, a few months increased from 3 mm to 9 mm. Is it serious?
The nodules with fast growth speed must first exclude malignant tumors and then consider benign.
The glass nodule, if it is malignant, cannot grow so fast, unless it is an old smoker. The solid nodule can achieve malignant tumors that grow so fast, only small cell lung cancer. So in general, the possibility of benign.
But we have to consider the worst results! So exclude two situations: rapidly growing vicious grinding glass nodules and rapidly growing solid small cell lung cancer.
The rapidly grinding glass nodule with a rapidly growing glass nodule is less than 5 mm. It is a low -risk nodule and most of the growth is very slow. Therefore, it can be reviewed every year. Most of them are benign. However, there are many smokers in our country,
The abrasive glass nodules of some smokers can also grow rapidly.
This is a case shared by Professor Huang of Shandong Cancer Hospital. Old smokers have less than 5 mm grinding glass nodules. One year, the nodules increased several times, and the extensive transfer occurred:
This is his PET-CT image, yellow high-thick gathering The districts are metastasized lymph nodes and adrenal metastases, and there is no chance of surgery.Therefore, we have a shorter interval for the first time the lung nodule discovered, especially the old smokers, especially the old smokers.
The rapid growth of small cell lung cancer grows rapidly, and the volume double is only 30 to 60 days. In the early days, it can be manifested as a solid sub -nodule to attract attention! Because the limited time can be cured by surgical resection.
Then the two situations above are more extreme and rare, and more common is benign inflammatory nodules, such as Conacrobacteria, tuberculosis balls, etc., but you need to further check and confirm it. Film antigen test, pests through dermatology.
In medicine, the diameter obtained from the diameter obtained by the lung nodule is divided into several types:
1. Small nodules: less than 5 mm in diameter;
2. Small small, small small Nodule: diameter is greater than 5 mm, less than 10 mm;
3. Nodule: diameter greater than 10 mm, less than 30 mm;
3, nodule stove: also known as the lump, the diameter is greater than 30 mm, the diameter is greater than 30 mm, the diameter is greater than 30 mm. The probability of viciousness is high.
Finding the lung nodule is not to see if it is the same or not, or it depends on its distribution, but to find a respiratory or thoracic surgeon to analyze the characteristics of the nodules and judge the malignant malignant.
Therefore, the “small nodule” in medical definition is a diameter description, of course, almost the same.
Here and not to mention other possibilities, just in terms of diameter, 6 ~ 8 mm lung nodules, it is recommended to review after 3 months. If there is no increase, it will be reviewed by 6 months. If there is no increase, the annual review; the lung nodule greater than 8 mm, it is recommended to check the PET-CT examination. Pulmonary spines biopsy or surgical resection.
Pulmonary nodule disease is a vague cause of the cause, and it is a granulation disease. Generally It may cause the patient’s human body to have problems, and then cause problems with all normal daily life of the patient. Therefore, patients with nodular diseases in the middle of life need to be relieved in a reasonable way, and then rationally control the problem of pulmonary nodule disease problems. , Preventing the problem of widow disease, causing other diseases in the human body, affecting their physical and mental health.
9 mm of the lung nodule is a relatively large nodule. When the patient is detected that the diameter of the nodule is 9 mm, further review needs to be performed to avoid avoiding it. Nodule evil changes. The nodule 9 mm has a small impact on the normal operation of the patient’s lungs, so it can generally be ignored when there are no other symptoms. However, because many patients live and have irregular diet now, they will make a knotThe area of u200bu200bthe festival is further expanded, so the rate of evil changes will rise. Patients should protect them to avoid contact with dust.
9 mm of the lung nodule should decide whether surgery is required according to the actual situation. Generally, the lung nodules of more than 10 mm need surgery for resection. At present, the advanced ones are currently advanced. Imaging examinations can be found in a small nodule. In these nodules, malignant tumor cells may be lurking. Therefore, some people who have found a nodule in the lungs are very stressful. I feel that they may have lung cancer and must do surgical resection.
When a healthy human body is checked, 10 % will find that there are small lung nodules, no symptoms, not all nodules need to need Operation. Do you want to cut the nodules? Determine according to the size and shape of the nodule and the changes in the follow -up time, and select to observe or perform surgery at the right time.
Patients with lung nodules should quit smoking, do not smell irritating gas for a long time, and eat more foods rich in vitamins and protein in diet, For example, lean meat, eggs, fish, milk, etc., which can provide enough nutrition for the human body, it is also helpful for the treatment of diseases.
To look at the size of a specific lesion. Malignant tumors generally double time is about two months, more than 40 days to 60 days. Then inflammation will change very quickly, and may change in a few days. Then there is a benign nodule. Its change time is generally in the annual record, which may be one year or two years. This is a very important symbol that we distinguish between the nodule benign and malignant.
If the lung nodule does not grow up, it is still safe. If it is obviously grown up, then it cannot be mistaken and let the doctor decide the treatment plan. Listening to the doctor will not be wrong. Your nodules are obviously grown up. Although they are still small, they should seek medical treatment immediately.
