Hi,

This image you described is suggestive of lung cancer (this is what is meant by "primary lung tumor" - the lymphadenopathy is suggestive of spread of disease to the lymph nodes) . The diagnosis however would require a biopsy. No amount of imaging would make the diagnosis certain.

The person from whom this image was taken should see a doctor straightaway and discuss the best method/approach to obtaining the biopsy.
