This is Dr. David
I am sorry about these findings for your husband.
how old is he?
is he a smoker?
why did he have this CT scan done?
1cm paratracheal lymph node could be 100% normal.
he could have an infection causing the 4.7cm pleural based mass.
it could be scar tissue from prior infections
or it could be a lung cancer.
I'm not sure what this 2.8cm fluid thing next to the heart boarder, could be collapsed lung, could be something else
he might need to see a pulmonologist to get a lung biopsy if he is at risk for lung cancer
does he have an appointment to see a lung specialist?
