Opacity on lung

My mother was told that there was an opacity on her lung.  She is going for a CT scan this week.  From what I can understand, an opacity is an opaque spot that showed on the chest x-ray.  Does an opacity on the lung mean lung cancer or can it be a myriad of other things like emphysema or an infection?  She has been a pack a day smoker for 50 years.
