How do you deal with monitoring a lung nodule and anxiety?
I recently had an abdominal MRI for liver cysts which showed nothing of concern. However, it did show a 10mm “questionable nodular parenchymal opacity in the lower left lobe.” It recommended seeing a pulmonologist for a ct scan. I am waiting for an appointment with a pulmonologist who I saw before for a 2 mm nodule discovered in right middle lobe 5 years ago. This was followed and deemed stable. I struggle greatly with health anxiety so now I am thinking that this 10mm nodule is lung cancer. The radiologist’s use of the word “questionable” is putting my anxiety over the top. Any thoughts?
