My mom had a chest x-ray and it showed a spot. She is having issues with weezing, a slight cough, and weight loss (10 lbs). I am very worried and trying to gather all of the possibilities for these symptoms. She has never smoked by my dad smoked for about 50 years of their married life. He has not smoked for the last 6 years. She is having a ct scan in a few days. What are the possibilities for these symptoms and if it is cancer what is the survival rate? Thanks so much from a person that prays it is only something minor. Sincerely Gumbi3
