My husband recently had a chest xray because his tb test came back possitive... (this was for immigration). They called and said they needed to do another view because the saw a spot on his lung. They did the other view but found that to be ok. There was no further explaination and he was sent on his way with the paperwork he needed for his appointment in april. My question is ..is this something we should be worried about or could it be nothing. He has no symptoms of any kind and feels good. Thank you.
If doctors saw something suspicious on a chest X-ray (they are looking for signs of lung cancer or tuberculosis) your husband would have been kept in the hospital for further analyses. If you would like to follow up on his case, you and your husband can return to the assisting doctor and review his X-rays...you don't need to be left with unanswered questions about his health.
