Fluid around lungs and chest cavity

My daughter's Yorkie has had some coughing for about 2 months. She had an x ray done and they thought her lungs were clear. She had blood work in October and everything was O.K. About 2-3 weeks after the first appointment she went to her regular vet and they gave her antibiotics. She has also been throwing up a clear, sort of slimy fluid. Today, she threw up 5 times so she went back to the vet again. They did another x-ray and it showed a lot of fluid and it was into the chest cavity too. She said she seems her normal self. They mentioned cancer and she is taking her to another doctor tomorrow. She had gone for over a month when one vet thought she didn't have pneumonia and the other one thought she did. During that time she didn't have any antibiotics. Could this just be a case of pneumonia that wasn't treated properly or does it look like it could be cancer?

Hope this third (?) Vet can get to the bottom of this.  I would think, by now, possibly an aspiration should be done and sent off to the lab for analysis. Another x-Ray and/or ultrasound might be done also.  Let us hope it is not Cancer and maybe something that can be identified and treated with antibiotics.  How old is the dog?  
Please come back and update and hope your daughter can get some answers.
