My 71 year old mum has been ill since Christmas. Started off as a cold, that went to pneumonia. She was told she then had a lung infection and was given antibiotics and steroids as she's an asthma suffer. The cough continued and she was sent for an X-ray which the drs said was still pneumonia, After a further X-ray last week she was sent to hospital today. Her left lung has a large mass covering about. 3rd off it, the consultant sent her for an immediate ct scan today and blood tests. We have been told there's a high risk of cancer and the consultant will ring us with results ASAP.
