Explanation Of Lung X-Ray Examination Lab Results?
Good afternoon, doctor
Hello, thank you for asking the HealthReplies.com team.
X-rays are a method of X-ray examination that uses visualization to visualize the inside of the body. From the x-ray examination results obtained suprahiler fibrotic tissue, meaning that there is scarring at the top of the right lung. This fibrotic tissue can be formed due to several factors such as environmental factors, diseases, drugs, radiation or chemotherapy, heredity, and so forth. A risky work environment is an environment that is often exposed to hazardous chemicals such as asbestos, coal powder, metal dust, and so on. In addition, fibrotic tissue can also form in lung diseases such as pneumonia, old pulmonary tuberculosis, sarcoidosis, etc. Some other factors that increase the risk of formation of scar tissue include old age (average age 40-70 years), but it can also occur in infants and children. Usually more common in men, have smoking habits, and usually will be more risky if you have a family with a similar disease. Fibrotic tissue in the lungs can be with or without symptoms, the resulting symptoms can be shortness, continuous cough, fever up and down, weight loss, and so forth. To ensure that the results of the examination should consult your doctor who asks you to do the examination, the doctor will adjust the results of the examination to the patient's clinical condition so that treatment can be more appropriate. It is better to keep on doing a healthy lifestyle, eating healthy and nutritious food, fulfilling fluid needs, and avoiding cigarettes and alcohol.
I hope this helps.
