Done bronchospy, had stomach pain and pneumonia. Has a shadow on kidney and lung. Meaning?

My mother has a shadow on her kidney and lung what does that mean and what should be done next. She is 80 and had a bronchospy done 2 weeks ago going back to consultant today ... What questions should I be asking. Also as a follow up from a few days in hospital 3 months ago she is having an ultrasound of her kidney and will be meeting a different consultant for that ... What should I be asking him. My mother is completely strung out about all these tests not having been healthy all her life she had a severe pain in her stomach 3 months ago and was hospitalised but they found nothing diagnosed she had atypical pneumonia these are the follow up tests now .. Thanks

Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
In my opinion the black shadow in the kidney area may be due to tumor or solid mass . Diagnosis can be confirmed by biopsy of the part.
2nd thing the shadow in the lungs is due to solid mass ( may be secondaries due to kidney mass ) in kidney area. Diagnosis will find out the exact nature and type of this mass .
3rd point is pain in the stomach , this may be due to peptic ulcer disease . Diagnosis can be confirmed by upper G I endoscopy . However try raising the head of bead 4 inches with blocks help.
Avoid greasy , spicy food .
In ,my opinion first of all consult an Urologist and get his opinion regarding kidney shadow and there after deal according to situation .
If kidney shadow normal as due to cyst then consult a pulmonologist and get his opinion and deal accordingly .
Only question is whether this black shadow is cancer or not.
Good luck for your mother . Dr. HET
