What Does it Mean if I Have a Lung Mass?

By January 31, 2012

Follow me on:

Many of you have written to me after receiving the news that you have a lung mass. How scary. And how totally confusing.

First it helps to define what a lung mass is. A lung mass is a "spot" on the lungs seen with an x-ray or CT scan that measures at least 3 cm (1 inches) or more in diameter. If a spot or spots are less than 3 cm they are considered lung nodules.

What are the possible causes of lung nodules and masses? And what can you expect in the upcoming days if you've heard that news?
