Incidental finding in lung
Hi all, thanks in advance for your comments. I just had a heart calcium score done and the CT scan found “atelectasis/consolidation” in my lower right lung. The scan notes did say that “no determinant mass or suspicious nodes are seen.” However, I cannot figure out why this has happened to my lower lung. I do have seasonal allergies, but they haven’t seemed that severe. So for now, I’m doing a round of antibiotics and will do a chest X-ray in a couple of weeks. I hope this is just an infection of some sort but I’m worried since I had HER+. I’m worried something sinister is hiding in there…..thanks for letting me vent..I don’t want to tell my family yet until I know for sure if it’s a recurrence.
At least my calcium score was zero
