Freaking Out! Abnormal chest xray after 7 years

I had a chest xray last week and it showed a increasing density in the lung. It is on the side of the cancer. I'm getting a CT scan of the lung tomorrow. Any prayers would be appreciated! I had a bad feeling about 7 years NED this year!

I have my fingers crossed for a good scan report. Take good care of yourself.
