There are more and more friends with lung nodules, especially this kind of ground glass nodules in the lungs. When a unit goes for a physical examination to take a chest CT, it will be found that many people have lungs. For very small pulmonary ground-glass nodules, you can continue to observe, but it needs to be judged by a professional lung surgeon.
A friend left me a message on the Internet, saying that he had read my popular science Article, I learned a lot. He has a ground-glass nodule in his lung, measuring 1.2 cm. It has been observed for more than a year, and there is no big change. He has been struggling between surgery and observation. Recently, he plans to have his teeth extracted. He would like to know whether the extraction of teeth will affect the operation of lung nodules. How long can I do lung nodule surgery after tooth extraction?
First of all, I would like to thank this friend for his support and a little text I wrote It is my honor to be able to help you all. Tooth extraction will not affect the operation of pulmonary nodules. It is possible to extract teeth during the observation period of pulmonary nodules. This is definitely no problem. Generally speaking, one month after tooth extraction, lung nodule surgery can be considered.
