Hey this is my first post. I'm writing because I've had to go to an urgent care on the weekend because of course my dr office was closed. The first visit they took a chest x Ray and said I had pneumonia, I saw the X-ray and it showed a grapefruit size mass on my right lung. Went back second time for strep throat, no X-ray then. Third time I went back two weeks ago they took another X-ray and it looked just like the X-ray taken 6 months prior, a grapefruit sized mass in right lung. Dr told me that I either had pneumonia for 6 months or it's a tumor. I'm having a ct scan Tuesday the 20th and I'm scared. I haven't shown that I'm scared to anyone because I'm telling myself it's just pneumonia. I have emphysema, copd, and chronic bronchitis. So I need to ask can you really have pneumonia that long? Any insight to this would be grateful. Thanks
