Lung Scars
Sep 8, 2003
Hi There,

I have been surfing the internet, and driving myself crazy. I don't know where to turn. My mom has had a dry persistent cough for years. She had a chest xray done for the past two years for something else, and last year the xray showed few nodules, this year more appeared. The doctor ordered pulmonary function testing, spirometer reading, and blood tests, all came back normal (she has no shortness of breath. However the CT Scan revealed moderate scaring on her lungs, but he doesn't know from what. They now want to perform a bronchoscopy. Any insight to what this is (cough for years, xray now showing scaring, but no shortness of breath???)
