Can pancoast tumors be mistaken for calcified granuloma?
coratid artery ultrasound soundt was normal. so eye dr. said it could be lung cancer because I have horners syndrome now. my internist said it's from concussion
is there a more obvious difference in how pancoast looks and what I have?
You are rightly informed that it may be due to past bronchitis or pneumonia
Thanks for writing to HCM
Small calcified lung nodules doesn't indicate lung cancer.
Calcification generally indicate healed stage of past infection.It is a absolutely benign finding.
Infection naturally heals by calcification and fibrosis.
You are rightly informed that it may be due to past bronchitis or pneumonia.
I don't think that eye findings are related to lung cancer because CT scan is extremely sensitive in detecting lung cancer.
Get well soon.
Hope I have answered your query.
Further queries are most welcome.
