Cancer: Lung Message Board


Cancer: Lung Board Index


like Annie said...I believe xrays are just first steps...they will not dx cancer but merely suggest a possible problem for further testing....and it is usually not till it is further advanced that it will show up on an xray... my husband had a pleural effusion and it caused a "white out" on the xray of where his lung should have been...they can also see larger masses..but still cant know for sure if it is cancer...

I would think though a sonogram would be a good indication but as conan stated you may want to insist on a CT scan to be more certain.....and even then something showing on a CT scan will just be an indication for more testing.....

good luck and we will keep our prayers that you are not inflicted with this awful disease....

if you have had a bad cough for 6-7 days you may have just hurt the muscles in your chest area...coughing is pretty violent on the body...I have had a back back for a number of years and there have been times where a bad coughing spell has thrown it out!
