Yes, X-rays can be misread or a spot may be difficult to see on the first X-ray, perhaps because it is hidden behind a rib or another normal structure in your lung. The first question to be answered, after a review of the X-ray, the one taken 6 months ago, by a radiologist to determine if maybe the spot was already present and is actually unchanged. Should that be the case that would be a reason for you to be relieved.
You refer to a “transfer.” I believe what you mean by that is that the spot was first described as being on the left lung is now on the left. This was probably an error in transcription but it is possible that one nodule has resolved and a new one has appeared. Your doctor should be able to answer that question.
The most important thing to be done is for all your X-rays to be reviewed by the radiologist, to establish exactly what the facts are. You have a right to ask for and be given this information.
If the response you get is unsatisfactory, you should request consultation with a lung specialist (pulmonologist) who is totally independent of the physicians who have provided your care thus far.
