    Ct results.

    Hi all
    I will make a long story short. Been smoking about 40 years diagnosed with COPD and Bullous Emphysema a long while back. Anyway started coughing up streaks of blood and having some pain in upper left chest. CT scan revealed an 8cm x 5cm mass in upper left lung and possible enlargement of esophageal and aortic lymph nodes. Next step is PET scan and needle biopsy. Pulmonologist seems fairly certain it is a malignancy. He and I have 12 year history so he doesn't sugar coat anything. Wish me the best. Prayer ok too
    Thanks, Rick
