My local Dr ordered a chest X-ray because I had a chronic cough,it showed a 6 mm opacity so then a ordered a Lung CT which said the 6mm wasn’t a concern any longer it’s just a shadow But the Lung CT did show a 9.5 mm ground glass nodule in the right lower lobe & was going me to a Pulmonologist but I called Mayo Clinic instead & had this local Dr to send my dr reports CT test results to Mayo after reading them they gave me a video appointment for this Tuesday , I’m wondering does that mean my case is not serious or what ?

@eternity28– Good morning. Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I am the Mentor for the lung cancer group and it's nice to meet you.

I think that what you are experiencing is Mayo Clinic's returning back to video calls because of the surge of Delta variant of covid. I'm sure that it doesn't reflect on your case at all. I don't think that you would have gotten a video call so soon if they weren't taking you seriously.

I once had a finding on a CT that showed a shadow too, pretty scary, eh?

Your lesion is less than 1/2" so it has been found early. How long did you cough before you went to your doctor?
