Do you have a ‘coin' in your lungs?

Frequently, patients see their doctors bringing their chest X-ray plates showing a “spot” in their lungs. Also called a “coin” lesion by doctors, a “spot” is a solitary lung nodule which is round or oval, as seen with a chest X-ray or CT scan. Inquirer Business. 09/16/11.
