Valley Fever?
Jan 25, 2017
I just learned that I have a small nodule in my left lung. This was discovered after 6 weeks of what appeared to be bronchitis. I went to my pulmonologist to make sure it wasn't pneumonia and the xray showed this nodule.

I lived in Arizona for 20+ years ... so this is a concern. Especially since this was not seen a year ago in an xray I had for a broken rib.
My doctor here in Connecticut has told me this small nodule .04 CM is nothing to worry about and has me taking prednisone and several other things to treat my symptoms.
Am I being over-concerned? And, should I even be taking prednisone until I get bloodwork/biopsy?

I have no idea where to go from here... any advice would be greatly appreciated!
