enlarged gland in upper right lung, scared

I went to see the doctor a month ago due to pain in my upper right back, she did a xray and found that I have a enlarged gland in my upper right lung, she said to repeat a xray in amonth to compare xrays...I went in today and had the 2nd xray, the pain in my upper right back is 80 percent better, she said the gland is the same size as it was before and there is enlarged veins paturding outward from it...I am so scared!!! she has me going in for a catscan with dye tomorrow evening...should I be alarmed?
