do i have lung cancer

Chest x ray says, there is a questionable vague area of slight irregular density adjacent to the left cardiac border, measures 1.8 x 1.7 cm. This may be due to overlapping shadows. A small pathologic area is not excluded. I am 45 and a smoker. Dr wants a ft scan. Very scared.
