A recent chest xray my mom had done to check for metastasis showed no cancer spread but COPD or asthma. I'm confused about what xray may have shown?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Distended Lung

The findings that were seen on the chest x-ray would include some over-inflation of the lung typically seen in COPD (any smoking history?) or asthma.
A much better report than metastatic nodules!

In brief: Chest X-ray

No need to get confused; chest x-ray likely did not show findings of metastatic cancer but just emphysema/copd in lung.
It sounds like a good report.
