Mom died with Lung Cancer
I'm on my second round of Antiobiotics, I have a really bad cough (non productive) for about 3 weeks now, that's why chest x-ray was ordered.
I've also had some significant weight loss, about 45 pounds in the last year and a half

Dear Anon,

I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of your mother to lung cancer. Have you looked into smoking cessation programs? 

What has your doctor told you about your nodule and weight loss? Please wait for further tests to determine the cause may be.

You're in our thoughts,
