I've complained of these symptoms for 5years. Chest CT every year and I started out with 1- 5mm nodule on my right lung. next year these was another 3mm nodule on right lung, next year another 3mm nodule on right lung and a 4mm nodule on my left lung. The doc says not ot worry everything looks stable.. how can it be stable when I keep getting more nodules every year

Thank you for all the information,
High neutrophil count can be from a few causes.
Common ones are infections or inflammation.
These can be in the form of abscess, furuncles, or infection in other organs.
Among the non infectious causes these can be hypersensitivity reactions, collagen diseases, infarction etc.
Your ALT level is mildy elevated.
Often it is not significant.
However, there can be liver issues like alcohol, drug, hepatitis.
Usually lung nodules less than 3 cm of diameter is a benign finding if there is no other associated findings in the X-ray.
Ct can reveal more detail picture about it.
I would suggest to take a follow up with doctor.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.

I don't drink, I have a fatty liver, been on pain meds 28 years due to a spine injury from falling off a wall on a construction job. Neck is fused at c4-c6 and back fused at L5-S1 with rods & screws
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 10 months ago.

Fatty liver, medicines can be a cause for the mild increase of ALT.

Doctor may take repeat tests after a few weeks.
