Hi, i have Emphysema and TB Granuloma and have had persistent chest infections for some time now. I am also on Methotrexate to treat psoriatic arthritis. in the past i have had chest x-rays and have not shown anything new except those as stated above. i have an extensive family history of lung cancer caused by cigarette smoking and I am a smoker myself. I have had a bronchoscopy which didn't show anything but at the moment i have persistent pleuritic pain in my right side of my chest for nearly 11 weeks now and my GP has just advised to monitor this. I have a persistent cough and in the past hace coughed up a little blood stained sputum. As you can imagine i am extremely worried if i have something sinister going on and its being missed, what can i do?
I Was recently admitted to hospital after visiting my GP (again) and was given all the usual blood tests and x-rays but again they said bloods were fine, x-ray didn't show up anything new but have told me i have to get a CT Scan in a few weeks time . Still having pain despite being on Morphine,
