Unhappy Spot or Mass on lung??

Ive looked through these pages, and found alot of information, and Im hoping someone out there could help me.

I have a great friend, and we decided to enter into a relationship. Not to long ago, he had a chest and head xray done after there was a fight, and they were looking for trauma. They let him go, but the Dr., upon putting his file away, saw something on the xrays. There was a spot or a mass on his left lung, and also the right side of his throat. He is 28, and been smoking about 7 or 8 years, around a pack a day. His Dr. wants to see him as soon as possible.

The Dr. hasnt been back in to discuss this with him yet, so I was curious if anyone knew how common it would be for this to be cancer, or if it could be something else. What might the next step be in getting a good diagnosis?

Thank you all so much for your time.
