I’m 50 year old male X smoker

I had to get an x-ray done and a Spirometry test got a call from my Doctor to go and see him for the results, he tells me I have COPD and a shadow on my lung.

At work I had a new Spirometry test done and here are the readings in %

EVC 83%

VC   83%

FEV1  87%

FUV    94%

PEF    99%

FEV1/FUC 96%

FFF  25     65%

FEF  50     64%

FEF  75     59%

FEF25-75   62 %

I’m no doctor but I’ve been searching the internet and to me it doesn’t look like I have COPD . By look at the resorts

but can I have copd and still produce these numbers, or am I reading the thing wrong

PS sorry about the grammar never was very good at school

    Hi all hope everyone is well

    just an update, I think it's important to let everyone know, and not just walk away from the forum

    ok had a call from the hospital and was told my lungs are clear ( haven't seen a

    consultant yet ) but was told I have systs on my, I see a consultant in March .

    i had a spiromety done in the hospital and the results where not as good as I thought

    they where going tobe my fev1 78% fev1/fvc 80% that's if I'm reading it right predicted value 3.67 observed pre 2.86 % = 78%
