Hi..I have had a chronic cough for several months and my Dr put it down to allergies and GERD but sent me for an x-ray to be sure. The x-ray has shown a small ill defined area of opacity in the lower right lung.
I'm terrified...I have only just turned 40 and have 3 children - my anxiety is so bad that I'm having to take low dose diazepam to cope.
The Dr referred me as an urgent fast track case to be seen within 2 weeks. On Friday the consultant rang me and said he really didn't think it was anything to worry about and most likely infection. Just to be sure he's sending me for a CT scan within the next 2 weeks.
Would an infection show like this on an x-ray?
