Lesions on Lung and Liver
My uncle is 69 y/o. Has history of smoking and drinking though he quit both 25 years ago. For the past 8 months, he has been in and out of deep fatigue, bronquitis and pneumonia. In december of 2009 he saw a general doctor who gave him the bronq./pneumon. diagnosis. After looking at a chest x-ray she suggested he see a pulmonary specialist but gave no detail. He never did. Fatigue and cough has gradually gotten worse. On top of all this he has had a severe enlargement of the testicules which appears to be unrelated and for fours years before winter 2009 he was living in Costa Rica. He has finally seen an internist who ordered a CAT scan of his chest and called him personally today to tell him he had lesions on his lungs and liver. He was asked to go in for a biopsy on monday. Is cancer a clear diagnosis here? Or is there a reasonable chance this could be something else?

Given his history, symptoms, etc. there is a high probability this is carcinoma.  However, there can't be a "clear diagnosis" until the pathology report comes back after the biopsy is done.  

Can't say it is cancer just yet.
