Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi this is Dr. Hill. Besides cancer, it could be a fungal infection, depending on what part of the country you live in. You need to have either an aspirate of one of the nodules or a bronchoscopy to get samples to determine. A bacterial infection is less likely, given that they are distinct nodules. Fungal infections are treatable, but require anti fungal medications for several weeks to months. Was bloodwork done? Please ask any additional questions.
Was the internist able to determine the source of the nodules? Just wanted to follow up with you after her appointment.
