About four weeks ago, my partner started coughing up blood..went to A and E, diagnosed with pneumonia and given antibiotics. This week he coughed up blood again. GP told him it wasn't pneumonia ( no indication in bloods) and he shouldn't have been diagnosed with that. He was sent straight for a CT scan which has shown nodules in both lungs. There were two consultants in the room, one of whom said " sorry to give you the bad news" and went on to say it is more than likely cancer. The other consultant then said I've been told not to say that. So my question is, can they be sure from a CT scan alone that it's lung cancer? My partner was given no information about nodule sizes etc.
Was meant to have a call yesterday about next steps, it's now going to be Monday if we're lucky.
Thanks in advance
