Navigating with purpose: The patient’s journey through incidental pulmonary nodule findings

We’ve outlined the top needs and challenges along the IPN patient journey.

Overview

Incidental findings are abnormalities uncovered unintentionally and often unrelated to the condition that prompted an exam. Pulmonary nodules are abnormal growths that form in a lung. They can be identified on imaging scans, such as X-ray and computed tomography (CT) scans.

Most pulmonary nodules are benign, but some can indicate the presence of lung cancer. Incidental pulmonary nodule (IPN) findings may allow more patients with lung cancer to be diagnosed at earlier stages. Detecting lung cancer at an early stage may help improve prognosis. But there are many barriers in the way of patients receiving the care they need. We’ve outlined the top needs and challenges along the IPN patient journey here.
