Lymph Nodes on the Lung: Shortness of breath

My mother has been admitted to three separate hospitals in the space of two weeks, with a general symptom of severe shortness of breath. X-Rays have revealed lymph nodes on the lung but other tests such as CT Scans and Blood Tests have revealed no other abnormalities. Other less prominent symptoms include dry mouth and sporadic tingling in the fingers and toes. Any advice would be really helpful, thanks in advance.

My sister has had pneumonia, had xrays, then a Ct and it was adnormal.  Now they have her an appointment with a pulmonary dr at Darmouth Medical Ctr, NH for physical, then a PET and a biopsy.  However, they haven't told her much and the soonest appt is 9/24/09...Today is 7/31/09.  I belive from what I have read and her health it may be lung cancer.
THoughts, advice?
