hello doctor, the doctor said there was a tumor in my lung but according to him it was just a benign tumor because if the results of the thoracic ct scan (31-41NU) did not usually lead to cancer because the absorbing cancer was usually a lot, and I was advised to do a biopsy But I have to wait another month because Lombok’s frequent earthquakes, I’m afraid that one month later it will get worse, what do the doctors advise,
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. When there is a lump or mass in a lung examination using a supporting examination such as an X-ray or CT scan, among the possibilities that can occur are:
Build-up of protein fluids or amyloidosis Fungal lung infection Formation of sacs in blood vessels or aneurysms Tumors or cancer
So that in your case, if a supporting examination has been done, the tendency will lead to the result of the supporting examination. And if your doctor wants additional examinations in the form of a biopsy to make the diagnosis more certain, then it must be passed before treatment is carried out. This is important considering that each possibility will require different handling. Therefore, if you are worried that something will happen to the lump in the next 1 month, it means you have to look for other health care facilities that provide biopsy examinations. However, given that your doctor has told you that it does not lead to cancer, a 1 month break will not have much effect on your lung condition. So, hopefully it answers your question.
