Is this lung cancer?

Hi, Id really appreciate some clarity on some x rays given to me by my vet, she is unable to tell me whether this is pneumonia or lung cancer in my 7 year old rescue Rottweiler Edie
Thanks everyone

You need to have a radiologist read the X-ray. I'm amazed your Vet did not send it out for that.

There's is zero chance any of us could accurately read those xrays because of the image quality, nevermind the fact that it is illegal for anyone other than a vet to make a diagnosis. As Laco said, I'm a bit surprised that your vet didn't sent out the images for a radiologist to review. That's becoming standard practice these days since most vets either won't or can't commit to a diagnosis. Or in the event that they are willing or skilled enough to read them, they still send them out for a second opinion to cover themselves against any litigation, which is what we do where I work.
