    Time scale?

    Ive been getting breathless lately so went to my doctor, he sent me for a chest xray and has called me today to say they found a shadow on my lungs, I have to have antibiotics and go back for another xray in 5 weeks.
    Question is, if they suspect cancer wouldn't I have been seen earlier than that?
    Thanks.

    Hard to say since there are other issues that can cause the shadow.
    Do you have a copy of the radiology report? If not get one.

    I take it you were checked for covid?

    Thanks for your reply.
    Ive recently had a chest infection and was told it was all clear now, so perhaps its not? just worried me that I only had the x ray last Thursday and doctor called me today.
    I also have GERD and may have a Hiatial hernia, both of which im having an endoscopy to confirm.
    Yes Ive had 4 covid tests and all were negative .

    If they suspect cancer, they wouldn't have given you an antibiotic.

    Hi...You have a lot going on. I hope the antibiotic helps if you happen to have continued infection.
    Let us know how you're doing and the outcome of the scope and xray.
