This is Dr. DavidI am happy to look at an xray. but chest xrays are 1940s sort of technology and often fuzzy and uncleara chest CT scan is much better at telling for sure if there is a mass or not in the lungsuntil he gets a chest CT scan, you and his doctors will continue to wonder if he has a mass in his lungs or not, no matter what I say.also, I don't have as good resolution of the chest xray on my computer from your image, compared to what radiologist have when they look at the chest xray in a radiology reading room.was his xray done in the USA?
