The onset of asthma doesn't mean that you've got cancer. Here's a link about adult-onset asthma [url]http://www.*****.com/asthma/guide/adult-onset-asthma[/url]

Have you talked to your doctor about the nodes in your lung? Your next cat scan could be in 3 months to see if your nodes grow. If you're not comfortable with what your doctor has said or waiting the 3 months, I would definitely get a second opinion. A lot of people do get second opinions.
