Copd and emphasema

I am diagnosed copd and emphysema, six months back. In my CT scan, the doctor found, hypotenuse lesion 2 cms in lateral segment of right middle lobe. I consulted DS cancer research centre,bangalore. They are giving ayurvedic medicines for the last five months, suspecting, that it may be cancer. In these six months, there was no change in lesions size. My doctor in puttaparthi, is saying that it is not cancer and to discontinue medicines for cancer. I am in dilemma, what to do. Please advise me.
