Hi mate. Im in Australia and had both top thirds of both lungs removed from cysts forming and causing lung collapses. Why you still smoking then dude. I'm telling you, give up. I didn't smoke and was 16 and 18 when had the surgeries. If it's calcified that's probably a good thing. It means it's going hard and is most likely contained to itself. How old are you. I am 37 now.
