Scar tissue on lung
In June, I had a bout of brochitis and had a chest x-ray which revealed a bit of scar tissue. Three months later, I had a follow up chest x-ray andf the doctor called me to tell me that nothing had changed. The scar tissue was still there. No bigger, no smaller. Now he wante me to have a cat scan. What is he looking for? What will that tell him that an x-ray can't? Thank you. By the way, I was a smoker but have not had a cigarette since June.
