Spiculated pulmonary nodule that has increased in size
I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this. I had a CT scan to review a nodule that I’ve had for four years which is now much smaller. However, I also have a secondary nodule in the upper lobe of my opposite lung which has grown from 6mm about six months ago to 10x9mm and is spiculated. Having pain and pulmonary function tests show mild respiratory alkalosis. I have a small cyst in one kidney and a calcified cyst on the other. I tested positive for lupus/scleroderma antibodies about two years ago. Could these new growths be autoimmune or neoplasms, particularly the spiculated and growing upper lobe nodule? Thanks!!!!
