Cough with a “black spot” seen on chest X-ray

I am a 38 yo female otherwise healthy, nonsmoker with a cough that’s lasted 8 weeks. I just compeleted a 7 day course of antibiotics for walking pneumonia but a 1.5 cm lucency in the right lower lung “concerning for a cavitary lesion” was seen on my chest X-ray I am terrified that it’s lung cancer. No family history of lung cancer. No fevers. No hemoptysis. CBC and basic chem panel were normal. Just a productive cough. I’m supposed to have a chest CT when the cough resolves but I am so worried it’s cancer. Anyone else have any insight or experience with this??
