Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Persistent shadow on chest x ray despite taking treatment suggest possibility of lung cancer.
Bronchoscopy and culture are negative for infection like TB.
So better to get done CECT thorax (CT scan with contrast).
If this shows mass lesion then CT guided biopsy from the mass is needed foracort diagnosis.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
