Hi I am new here. Recently I had to go to the emergency room, I could not breathe and have had a cough for a few weeks. It was so bad that I had collapsed in the ER parking lot. The doctor said that it looked like I had asthmatic bronchitis and also had some xrays taken of my chest. They wanted to admit me based on the EKG something was wrong with my heart and my oxegen level was below normal. I did not stay I really needed to be to work the next day. Anyways, the hospital called me back and said they found something on my chest xrays and that I needed to have more done. They said it could be a mass or scar tissue. I have been reading up on lung cancer and it seems like i have alot of the stmptoms other people with the disease have .. and Im a little scared I'm only 31 and have 2 children. Could what they saw in the Xray be cancer?
