Hi. I am looking for advice - my mum had an abnormal chest X-ray around 3 weeks ago which showed a single "mass" in her upper right lung. She had a fast track ct scan with contrast 2 days later and waited 12 days to get the results. We went to the chest clinic on Monday and the consultant said he thinks it is a tumour because of how it looks and the size (4.3cm) it is in her upper right lung. She has been told she will have a pet scan and also a needle biopsy - and it will take around 10 days for the appointments and to come in. I feel like this is quite a long time especially as he is saying it looks like a tumour, surely they would want to start treatment asap? I really don't know what to think at this point, it has all come as quite a shock. She was only sent for the X-ray as she has had a few colds / chest infections in the last few months which have cleared up. A previous chest X-ray in June 2015 was completely clear so we really weren't expecting this.
