I recently had some lung biopsies done as I have

I recently had some lung biopsies done as I have had repeated bouts of pneumonia over the last year. I see my surgeon in a couple of days for the results but no one has called me if they found anything. My surgeon showed me the cat scan of my lungs; the cat scan show my lungs were inflamed, this is why we did the biopsies. The surgeon showed me some spots on my lung and he said this is what they called ground glass. I forgot to ask what that means. A man at our church today said my symptoms sounded like his now deceased business partner illness that they finally diagnosed as Wegeners Disease but it was too late for him. My friend said that he knows three men that have died from this disease as they they just weren't diagnosed properly. I will talk to my surgeon and my lung specialist about this as I will see both of them this week.

At my annual physical a cxr was done -conclusion: indeterminate nodular density within the left midlung. may reflect a confluence of shadows, though I cannot exclude the presence of a pulmonary nodule. I was sent for a CT impression:abnormality within the left chest on recent radiographs correlates with a nodule in the left midlung/left lower lobe. measures up to 9mm. not calcified. I was told by my PCP that they would send me back for another CT in 3 months to see if the nodule changes in size, if so I will have a biopsy , if not will go back for another CT in3 months. Should I wait 3 months and see if it changes in size or go to some type of specialist?

Can a lung biopsy determine whether or not a lung mass is the result of the use of macro bid? A CT scan, expats, lung biopsy, blood tests show a 4.5 cm mass on my lower right lung but my oncologist has determined it is not cancerous. I was referred to an infectious disease specialist who took many blood tests. I waited two weeks for the results only to be told that all tests were negative. He told me if anything changes I should go to the ER. NOT SURE WHERE TO GO FROM HERE ..CAN I HAVE THE MASS SURGICALLY REMOVED?

My 85 year old grandfather recently went into hospital with stomach pains and was diagnosed with an appendix rupture. But prior to the diagnosis, a CT scan was done and a mass on his lung was visible. A biopsy was given, but they couldn t get to the spot, so now the doctors want to do another biopsy and go through his back. Should we get the biopsy given that my 85 year old grandfather probably wouldn t be able to handle any chemo or radiation if diagnosed?
