Hi everybody,
I was sent for a ct for my lungs and my doctor told me the ct showed a spot on the left lung and thought it was copd.
Yes I smoke for 32yrs Iam 45,I have a dry cough,short of breath get very dizzy and weak when I do anything of all.
My mother died at age 47 with lung cancer she didnt smoke or drink.I work at a recycling facility where it is very dusty,fumes,dampt cold.when Iam at work I have alot of breathing problems, my doctor has me on puffers, and still told me to stay at work.is this a smart choice?
Iam not sure as to the spot the size or what maybe the problem but my left side is sore by touch and will not go away, I get sick mostly everyday and spit up white flem.I go back to see my doctor nov15 for a follow up.Any idears what I should be doing ? please help.
