Will the lung nodules disappear

Whether the lung nodules will disappear depends on the nature of the nodules. 80% of lung nodules are benign nodules. Some benign nodules can be maintained for many years without development, or even disappear without treatment. 20% are malignant nodules, which will gradually increase as the disease progresses.

Pulmonary nodules are mainly found on lung X-rays, CT or magnetic resonance. Most of the benign lesions can be caused by infection with pneumococcus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella, etc. It is also found in Mycobacterium tuberculosis and fungal infections. In addition, non-infectious factors, such as benign lung tumors and lung malignant lesions, can also appear as lung nodules.

For benign nodules of the lungs caused by inflammation, treatment can be done according to the cause. For malignant lung nodules, surgical treatment is the first choice, and radiofrequency ablation can also be used.
