Rib nodule

Recommended Posts

A nodule on an x-ray could be just about anything - like a callus from an old fracture (which can be small enough to not show on an x-ray (personal experience), bone/cartalidge overgrowth, or even a pretty wide variety of benign tumors.

Only the doc can really tell you what it is. I'd go Google for you but I'm not in a place for random research and I'll probably end up going down a hole of my own symptoms.

If the doctor doesn't seem worried, it's probably nothing to worry about. Things are more commonly scary in our minds than they are something bad in real life.

I know waiting is torture. Maybe try to find something to distract yourself with if you can.

I hope you get the answers soon so you don't have to worry about it too long.

Wishing you the best. Hang in there.
