    How urgent is diagnosis lung cancer?

    I have had a cough over a year, which the doctor has tried to treat with antihistamines, expectorant, etc. It recently became much worse quite suddenly, and the doctor ordered chest x-rays. The x-rays showed an opacity in the upper lobe of my right lung. The doctor has sent a referral to radiology for a CT scan and I have been waiting for a call from them when they have an opening in their schedule. It's been over a week and no call from radiology. If this is lung cancer, isn't it urgent....

    Scary symptoms

    Hello, my name is Eric. I am a 29 year old male, very skinny, and have smoked for about 11 years now. Well for about 5 months now I've been experiencing very debilitating fatigue. It has progressively been getting worse. Sometimes I get chest pains if I exert myself too much, and in the past week I get pain if I breathe in real deep sometimes or if I straighten my back as I usually slouch. My legs feel light as my muscles aren't as strong and get tired easily if I try to lift any weight or....

    Persistent swollen lymph node(s)

    Hi, I honestly didn’t know what message board I should post this in, but none of the others seemed right. I have had one lymph node that has been swollen for about 2 years. Others come and go. And recently I have begun having occipital soreness when I move my head and pain to touch. Occasionally the lymph node hurts. I have taken many antibiotics for it, but no help. I have recently begun to also get chronic migraines and nausea. Not sure if it’s related. Do I need to see a doctor soon, or can it....
