What does Probably COPD mean? I cannot help but wonder how many people have died or had to undergo more extensive treatment for things like lung cancer because of this diagnosis on a Lung x-ray. Or Probably anything else.
I would like to hear from anyone who has received this report on their lung x-ray. Probably COPD or Probably anything else is nothing more than a guess. It means we see something wrong but because we do not know what it is and the person has COPD, it is Probably COPD.
But what if it is not COPD? What if it is lung cancer or something else. At the very least, the patient's doctor ought to follow up on it. None of mine ever have. It is simply accepted as probably true and nothing else is done.
If this is happening to you, or you have not received the proper diagnosis because of it, please let your current doctor know that this is not acceptable. be sure to write about your experiences with it here.
regardless of whether it is Probably COPD or Probably ????, don't sit back and accept it. Do something about it.
