1st xray -Left midzone opacities.2cxr-Trachea upper part shifted to left,Left dome of diaphragm raised, with non-homogeneous opacities nd a round dense opacity- Bronchogenic ca.

Right sided middle zone pneumothorax

Left parahilar cavitating mass which worsened in 2 months causing collapse of left lung with shift of mediastinum to ipsilateral side, rib crowding and raised dome of diaphragm..given the history of smoking.. squamous cell lung cancer more likely.. non malignant causes mostly tubercular .. sputum exam will differentiate.. Cect chest/pet ct followed by fob with tblb for diagnosis..
