Sinusitis does not cause a lung nodule. The causes of a lung nodule are by infections such as bacterial or fungal. A spot on the lung that is about 3 cm or less is considered to be a lung nodule.
A lung nodule a spot on the lung that is 3 cm in diameter. Lung nodule are more likely to be cancerous than not. 40% of lung nodules are cancerous. One will most likely need a surgery as well.
The term "lung nodule" is the most commonly used description for such medical conditions. A lung nodule is usually noncancerous and does not exceed three centimeters. Any growth beyond that is a mass rather than nodule and is more likely to be a cancer.
A growth in the lung with clean edges, unlike cancer.
a nodule is a tiny growth in the lung that almost everyone has it is not uncommon. however if you have copd or any lung disease you should have your lungs tested every 6 months to make sure they are not growing
A nodule seen in a scan of the lung can be various things. It could simply be a scar caused by previous infections or it could potentially be a serious kind of cancer.
If your cat has a nodule, you need to take it to a veterinarian. There is no single cause for a nodule.
A lung nodule is a node that can be from infection, scar tissue or tumor. Depending on the size, shape and character of the nodule we determine the likelihood of cancer. If we cannot rule the possibility of lung cancer, a larger nodule (or mass) may be biopsied either using a bronchoscope by a lung doctor, or a needle biopsy under CT guidance by a radiologist for diagnosis in the least invasive way although there is a small chance of collapsing the lung.
It can be an infection, a harmless scar or cancer.
A lung nodule is a mass of abnormal tissue in the lungs. It is caused by infections that impact the respiratory tract. They are diagnosed through chest x-rays, biopsies, and CT scans.

yes it could be cancer
A lung nodule is an abnormality on your lungs that is smaller than 3cm. Anything larger than 3cm is called a mass. Nodules can be caused by a vast variety of different things. Therefore, the shape of a nodule varies. They can occur inside or outside of the lungs. Most nodules are benign (60%).
A pulmonary nodule is a small round or oval-shaped growth in the lung. It is sometimes also called a spot on the lung or a coin lesion. Pulmonary nodules are generally smaller than 3 centimeters in diameter. If the growth is larger than that, it is known as a pulmonary mass. A mass is more likely to represent a cancer than is a nodule.
7 mm is about a quarter inch and 3 mm about an eighth of an inch.
A white spot on an x-ray of the lung is also called a pulmonary nodule. A spot less than 3cm is a nodule, and larger is a mass. There are a couple reasons a pulmonary nodule would show up in the lung field. First, an infection in the lungs has left scarring, or a benign nodule in the lungs which does not need treated. Typically these types of spots will show up on the x-ray with defined borders. The other type of nodule is a malignant, or cancerous, pulmonary nodule. These need to be immediately treated for the best possible outcome. They typically show up on an x-ray with fuzzy or hard to define borders. It is recommended that if you smoke or are at risk for cancer to have annual chest x-rays done for precaution to ensure that any malignant nodule is caught before growing larger, becoming metastatic, and spreading.
They cause lung cancer
3 mm is about an eighth of an inch; 7 mm is a bit more than a quarter inch.
When allergies are severe, it can cause a large amount of congestion. This congestion can lead to the inflammation of the sinus cavities which is called sinusitis.
PCH Trivia = Viral
Thyroid cysts are nodules filled with fluid. They can be small or large. If a nodule has both solid and fluid parts, it is called a complex nodule, and need to be removed if they cause pain or difficulty when swallowing.

Smoking is the leading cause of lung disease.
Smoking is one cause of lung cancer.
