Hi there!

The referral to a lung doctor was brilliant but I think you should have that consult as early as possible.  We usually see this kind of CT scan in patients who may have lung malignancy and waiting for May seems too long.  I suggest you facilitate your appointment so that you can be worked up further and faster, and so that whatever the outcome, it can be treated early and promptly.

The liver function tests can be due to a fatty liver or with your background having all of these lung findings, it could very well be something else.

I hope you get to consult with your lung doctor as soon as possible. Regards and God Bless...

thank  for the reply    will they do a biopsy  , or  what other work up    or  should  i  just talk to an oncology dr.
is it possible  this  situation showed  as a result  of  a cancer somewhere else .   Or could it have  just started  in the lung.//

my daughter was diagnosed with scaradois several week ago and has MRI, CAT Scans today she was told that her upper and lower lungs has calcified but her kidneys tested fine. The doctor says she is treatable but said nothing about testing for maligency should she be  worried.
