Thanks for writing to HCM

CT scan report shows that there is abnormal mass lesion in right lobe of lung. Segmental Bronchus( tube for air passage in lungs) in right side are also occluded.
No fluid accumulation in right pleural cavity.
Lymph nodes( node are present in lymphatic system ) are also enlarged and these are increased in size as compared to previous ones and this is not good at all.
There is also another lesion in left lobe of thyroid.
Exact nature of these mass lesions can be confirmed by biopsy.
Hope you have understand the terms.

Take Care
