My husband's chest x-ray report reads as follows:
Findings: There is borderline hyperinflation. There is a subtle, ring-shaped area of soft tissue in the right mid lung, subpleural in location and measures approximately 3.8 x 2.6 cm. A portion of this density overlies the right fourth rib. Cardiac silhouette and pulmonary vasculature are normal. There are calcified granulomas.
Impression: There is a possible ring-shaped area identified in the right mid lung measuring up to 3.8 x 2.6 cm. While this may simply represent fortuitous visualization of a confluence of shadows, the possibility of a cystic neoplasm or possibly developing lung abscess is not excluded. A CT scan would be recommended. Old granulomatous disease. Findings are superimposed upon borderline emphysematous changes.
It sounds bad to me like it is lung cancer. What do you think?
