In order to welcome the 2023 Bookish Tianjin·Reading Month and the 2023 National Science Popularization Day, on September 8, “‘Lung’ is dedicated to reading you” hosted by Tianjin Science and Technology Press and co-organized by the Nanyingmen Street Science and Technology Association of Heping District, Tianjin A popular science lecture on pulmonary nodules was held in Jindushuyuan of this city. Professor Wang Meng, chief physician from the Department of Pulmonary Oncology of Tianjin Cancer Hospital, came to the scene as the keynote speaker to explain the “past and present” of pulmonary nodules to readers in a simple and easy-to-understand manner.
In recent years, with the refinement of physical examination items, people have a deeper understanding of their physical conditions. Medical terms that were not well understood in the past have also “got names” in everyone’s minds. For example, the detection of pulmonary nodules on chest CT examination is one of the issues that everyone is particularly concerned about. So what exactly are pulmonary nodules? What should you do if you have pulmonary nodules? How should we protect our lung health? Regarding these issues, Professor Wang Meng, chief physician of the Department of Pulmonary Oncology at Tianjin Cancer Hospital, has made a detailed explanation for readers in the book “The Past and Present Life of Pulmonary Nodules: 50 Questions to Understand Pulmonary Nodules”, which he led and edited. Interpretation. This event is precisely for Director Wang Meng to conduct face-to-face science popularization for readers.
Before the event started, Comrade Meng Xianggang, Party Branch Secretary, General Manager and Editor-in-Chief of Tianjin Science and Technology Press, took the stage to deliver a speech. He said: “A good popular science book is better than thousands of sermons. In recent years, the creation of popular science books has also become more and more popular. Paying more attention to looking inward and paying attention to outstanding cultural achievements from a small perspective is a new trend in the development of popular science readings. The book “The Past and Present Life of Pulmonary Nodules: 50 Questions to Understand Pulmonary Nodules”, led by Director Wang Meng, It seizes the pain point that readers are most concerned about and digs deep into it. Combined with the integrated publishing method of video explanation, it provides readers with a more comprehensive and authoritative popular science explanation, so that everyone can get rid of anxiety and panic about the problem of pulmonary nodules after reading. .”
This lecture is conducted through interaction with readers. A reader at the scene said that he was very distressed when he was told that he had pulmonary nodules in the physical examination report at a young age. In response to this issue, Professor Wang said: “It is not an isolated case for patients to panic about the existence of pulmonary nodules. It is precisely because many patients will have all kinds of anxiety and uneasiness about pulmonary nodules due to information bias and other reasons. Therefore, let us I came up with the idea of writing “The Past and Present Life of Small Pulmonary Nodules: 50 Questions to Understand Pulmonary Nodules”. I hope this book can help patients reduce their psychological burden and give readers preliminary reasonable diagnosis and treatment suggestions.” It is understood that this is precisely because With this original intention, the writing team of the Department of Pulmonary Oncology of Tianjin Cancer Hospital provides a detailed description in the book from the causes, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis, as well as the screening and intervention of early lung cancer, and uses questions and answers. The content is presented in a format so that everyone can understand it at a glance. At the same time, this book also helps readers analyze the groups and high-risk factors that are prone to lung nodules and lung cancer, and based on this, provides everyone with life suggestions to prevent lung cancer.
At the event, in order to more comprehensively explain the different types of pulmonary nodules and the differences in clinical diagnosis and treatment methods, Professor Wang Meng also combined CT images to further popularize science for readers, so that everyone can truly feel the differences between different pulmonary nodules, and thus understand When it comes to pulmonary nodules, you cannot judge the time and method of diagnosis and treatment solely based on limited knowledge on the Internet. Through Professor Wang’s patient and detailed explanation, everyone learned that detecting pulmonary nodules during physical examination does not mean suffering from a lung disease. This is just a very common phenomenon in clinical practice. Whether it is changes in living environment, lifestyle habits, or advances in medical imaging technology, the number of asymptomatic pulmonary nodules being detected is increasing. But in fact, the vast majority of pulmonary nodules are benign lesions. Benign lesions manifesting as pulmonary nodules are usually inert. As long as no tendency to malignant transformation is found during follow-up and reexamination, they will coexist peacefully with the patient in an inactive state.
At the end of the lecture, many readers were still reluctant to give up the opportunity to interact with Professor Wang Meng and enjoy one-on-one answers from experts. Among these issues of great concern, this event ended successfully.
