I went for my latest CT scan and they discovered multiple small nodules in both lungs. The first scan I had didn't show any nodules at all; that was 1 year ago. Just wondering if anyone else has these and if they have caused problems for you and what your doctor says the chances of them being malignant are? My doctor said they are non-specific and I shouldn't worry about them. I need to go back for another scan in 6 months. The radiology report even said I had 1 or more small nodules… read more

Likewise, Susan! Thanks for the prayers. We all can use as many of them as we can get!! Realize that Jesus loves you so much and wants to help you. If we pursue a relationship with Him, we have access to His very throne! But the catch is that personal relationship. His return is very soon, and that means we all need to get ourselves right with Him. Any questions about how this can happen between you and the Lord, just ask. I'd be more than happy to lead you to Him. He's waiting patiently for you! I am truly looking forward to getting to know you, Susan, and I'm hoping we can strike up a really great friendship!!
Hi @A MyCOPDTeam Member! Absolutely, add me to your team and I'll add you to mine. I researched this and it seems that lung nodules are common, very much so, especially in people that have COPD. We are at a higher risk of them becoming cancerous, but most often that doesn't happen. Yours most likely came about from the pneumonia, as the causes are usually due to infection/imflammation. I had my house reinsulated in January and haven't been feeling quite right since. I'm positive this insulation is giving off VOC's, volatile organic compounds or chemical vapors, and that's what caused my nodules. When I open all my windows and air the place out, I feel much better. 50% of people who have a ct scan of the chest have lung nodules and they didn't even know it. Just like you and me! I had stem cell treatments last year and when I told them the results of my scan they said the same thing my doctor said and all the research I did said, that they are very common and almost always benign. But, they need to have an eye kept on them, just in case. Please don't worry, Susan. Worry causes stress and stress causes inflammation, which is something we should avoid at all costs. It stinks we have this, but there are ways to help and even improve our conditions. God is in control of all things and he's not shocked by what's happened to us. Hand over the reigns to Him and let Him carry this burden for you. He has much stronger shoulders than we do. He carried the cross that was laden with the sins of mankind on his shoulders, didn't He? I'm certain He can handle this. I'm praying for you.
