Finding out that you have lung nodules can be quite frightening. Hearing this is enough to put most people in a panic, and that's understandable. However, before jumping to conclusions, it's important to seek out medical help that will diagnose exactly what is going on and how to treat it. That's where we come in, we are Saddleback Pulmonary Associates and Coast Sleep Centers. We have spent years treating residents of Irvine, CA, Dana Point, Ladera Ranch, and other local areas. Give us a call so we can help you. We'll set you an appointment with our knowledgeable staff. We care for the whole patient, we don't just treat a symptom.
The first thing to understand is that most lung nodules are not cancerous. Yes, that's right, don't automatically think the worst because more times than not, it's not cancer. Even on the chance that it is, it's treatable. Catching things early is often the key to a great outcome.
If you are experiencing symptoms that cause you concern, don't want for them to clear up, make a call and get checked out. If you cough up blood, have difficulty breathing, feel out of breath for no reason, or are coughing and you can't figure out why it's better to get looked at. It may well be nothing serious and then you can stop worrying. If it is something that more serious, you'll begin treatment early and that often means a better outcome and fewer complications.
We know that it can be scary, and we understand, but not knowing is often even scarier. You may very well be scared and worried about something that isn't that big a deal. Give us a call so we can figure out what's going on, treat the problem, and get you back to living your normal life.
