Here is my story. I was smoker for almost 10 years.i am 33 years old now. I have stopped smoking 1 month ago. And after stop smoking I have visited doctor for regular check up and done chest X-ray 2 times in one month period. Results are as below (both the time),
No active pulmonary lesions
No active pul. Tbc & Pneumonia
No abnormal Mass lesions (Lung cancer, abscess etc)
No bony abnormalities
There is also one recommendation given,
REC) F/U Chest PA – 6 month interval regularly for 10 years.
When I asked what is the need to take chest PA for 6 month interval regularly for next 10 years? He told as you smoked 10 years around so it’s always suggested to take Chest PA 6 month interval regularly for 10 years.
After seeing this recommendation, I am little scare. Is it suggested usually? Or what does it mean? Please help me. I am Really scared after seeing the recommendation
