abnormal spots on the lungs

I have pneumonia and I had double pneumonia a year ago. The doctor said I have abnormal spots on my lungs that are irregular shaped. He said it could be cancer, histoplasmosis or a couple of other things. He sent me to a cancer doctor and they are going to do a biopsy. I live in Columbus, Indiana and my neighborhood was near some of the flooded areas although, my house didn't flood. I don't do gardening or anything in the dirt either. The doctor said I could have gotten histoplasmosis because of the flood near me. Is this possible? are there other ways to diagnose the disease? Could it really be cancer? Are there other resperatory ailments that cause spots on the lungs? The doctor said the spots weren't there a year ago, so what could have caused them so fast? Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
