Specializes in Neonatology

The possibility of a mass requires more diagnostics, with your symptoms it is possible its pnemonia, much less concerning than a cancer mid-lung. Scanning can help, but a pulmonologist can decide the right test to reduce fear and misdiagnosis. Hopefully you are using a broncholdilator among the medications you are using. The pulmonologist can direct specific therapy and help treat what you have
