Getting a Cortisone Shot Cause Problems
I had 2 cortinsone shots many years ago could it cause problems down the road such as parenchymal pleural scaring and thicking of subplueral?
Thank you for visiting NetWellness. Many visitors have questions pertaining to lung scars. No, cortisone shots would not cause these effects.
Please visit What is Lung Scarring? for information about this condition.
