Pnuemona lung CT showed possible mass

I am in the hospital with pneumonia in all four lobes of my lungs. The Ct, they said was so full of scar tissue and infiltrates, that there could be a mass that they aren't able to see.
I'm trying not to worry but my friend just died of lung cancer and her funeral is tomorrow.
I am an ex smoker. I smoked for about 25 years. and didn't for 9 years.
Please give me your opinion. And should i ask if i can read the ct scan?

Re: Pnuemona lung CT showed possible mass

First of all, try not to worry- I know this is easier said than done, but it wont actually help you! I'm sure that the first priority is to get the pneumonia cleared up & I'm sure you are in good hands at hospital & receiving the right treatment for this to happen.

By all means ask to see the CT scan- & ask if someone can explain it to you- a 2nd opinion may help. As the pneumonia is so wide spread this is probably why there is so much scar tissue?

Meanwhile rest while you can to give the medications every chance to work. Please let us know how you get on & take it easy! I wish I could help more!
