I had a lasting cough that was not going away. I went for a chest x ray and was told straight away that I needed to go back for a CAT scan as there was something viewed that needed further examination in more detail. The radiographer said that it was the doctor that advised this. She said not to worry and tried to reassure me it might simply be an infection. I'm a life long smoker and I am not stupid that this could be lung cancer. Surely they wouldn't get me back for a ct scan if they simply thought to was an infection.
I am now waiting on appt. they said it would be within a couple of weeks and I am really worried now the more I think. Would they just get me back in for a ct scan to determine an infection or something other than lung cancer?
