How did they diagnose upper respiratory infection? Have you had a chest x-ray? Tell your doctor you want to be checked for lung cancer. If you are in an HMO you will have to tell them what you want. Otherwise they will stall as finding something bad like cancer will cost them money. And they don't want that.
Sincerely hope it isn't cancer. Good luck!
