Brief Answer:
It all sounds fine

Detailed Answer:
Hi Princepia,

It is a nodule of uncertain significance. Considering your age, it is very unlikely to be cancer. The radiologist recommends a follow-up scan; if it does not grow, it is unlikely a cancer. The risk of cancer is especially low if you have never smoked.

Hope this helps.

Brief Answer:
It does not look like PF

Detailed Answer:
Hi again,

It does not look like PF. Problems with breathing can be many things, e.g. heart disease, asthma. Have you been examined for these conditions?

Brief Answer:
Have you tried positive end-expiratory flow apparatus?

Detailed Answer:
Hi again Princepia,

Lung collapse is bit of a stretch. Instead, small parts of your lung have smaller than normal amounts of air. This may be relieved with the use of positive end-expiratory flow devices (to blow in). Have you tried this?
