Bronchovascular Hilar Thickened Whether It Has To Do With Heart Problems?
Hello looking at the medical history that I asked in the HealthReplies.com forum, am I leading to heart problems? Bronchovascular hilar thickened whether it has to do with heart problems? Will the radiologist include information if there is a heart condition even if it is a referral from an internist? Because my left chest feels bigger than my right chest, and also my pulse is always above 95. Please enlighten me, thank you. Greetings healthy
Hello Aris, thank you for asking again at HealthReplies.com.
Based on complaints and also the results of investigations that you submit in the previous question, then your complaint as stated by your doctor, which leads to the diagnosis of acute respiratory infections or acute respiratory infections, and no complaints and the results of supporting examinations that lead to cardiac abnormalities, as well as a picture of thickened bronchovascular hilum. In general, the bronchovascular thickening leads to abnormalities in the lungs such as ARI, bronchitis, silicosis (pulmonary disease due to silica dust), or sarcoidosis.
In addition, please also note that not all heart abnormalities can be detected by chest x-ray, because there are other tests that are more specific, it will be recommended by your doctor if indeed your complaint leads to a heart abnormality, so if there really is an abnormality in the heart that can be seen on the x-ray, whether or not there is a complaint or clinical statement from your internal medicine doctor who accompanied when making the photo, the radiologist will still write it in the interpretation of your x-ray results. If it is not found, the radiologist will write it according to the results of your photo.
Regarding your complaints that your left chest is bigger and your pulse is always above 95, it can be caused by several possible conditions such as pulmonary emphysema, bronchitis, heart rhythm (arrhythmia), psychosomatic, panic disorder, anxiety disorders, or body dysmorphic disorder. Therefore, you should consult it again to handle your complaint to a specialist in internal medicine who is currently handling your condition. If indeed any indication of a cardiac examination is found, your doctor will definitely advise you to be done to ensure the presence or absence of heart abnormalities based on your complaint.
I hope this helps.
