I know this is such a vague question, but after 2 months of not feeling well a few 'spots' were found on my mom's chest x-ray. They followed with a CT, no results till tomorrow. She's had fatigue, weight loss, loss of appetite, difficulty breathing. No chest pain, no other pain. Just feels like someone is sitting on her chest and it's hard to get a good deep breath. No temperature, blood pressure was good, no increased white blood cell count. No coughing, no blood. Any thoughts on this? I know it could be anything, but last year's x-ray was totally clear. I believe it's one lung only. As a cancer survivor I am, of course, VERY concerned. She is 80 years old (this Saturday) and has been smoking since about 20 years old. So, I know the possibilities in that respect, just need some input on this. Thank you and God Bless for your help!
