Case 76: A Small, Solitary Nodule Adjacent to a Fissure

Small solitary nodules adjacent to fissures have a specific methodology for diagnosis

Bhavin Jankharia

This 57-years old, treated for carcinoma of the vaginal vault, came with a 4.6 mm nodule in the right lung.

What would you do?

  1. < 6 mm - so leave alone?
  2. Follow-up at 3 months
  3. Get old scans to compare with?
  4. Biopsy, if new
  5. Leave alone, PFN

The video explains the case and discusses the concept of a PFN in detail.
