I.L.S.: I just can't bring myself to sit in the ER for 7 hours freezing and bored only to find out it's normal (like last time) and it's just a little fluid or something. They can't do or give me anything so whats the use? Nov 12, 2014 16:04:28 GMT

khj: In general, nodules should not cause SHARP pain. Unless you have a verified history of sharp pain caused by nodule, it is unlikely. If from lung area, sharp pain usually associated with inflammation/irritation of lung lining. Call your doctor. Nov 13, 2014 1:26:43 GMT
