Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The results you wrote down show that there is consolidation in the lungs. Consolidation is a condition when the space in the lungs, which is normally filled with air, is replaced by something else, which can be either a liquid or a solid object. But other than that, your heart isn't enlarged, and the rest of it appears normal.
Pulmonary consolidation can arise due to the following possibilities, such as:
Pneumonia conditions Pulmonary edema Tuberculosis Bleeding lung Cancer
What you should know is that chest X-rays, and most investigations, do not really tell the diagnosis. Except maybe it is indeed a supporting examination that aims to detect certain diseases such as a test for typhus, an HIV test, a sputum test for TB, and so on. However, tests such as x-rays, ultrasounds, routine blood tests, kidney function tests, and sedimentation rates require a combination of these results with the results of medical history and physical examination, as well as other investigations to be able to really understand the condition.
So our advice is that you should continue to re-consult these results with a pulmonary doctor, so that further examination of your condition, what complaints you feel, your medical history whether you often inhale cigarette smoke or not, and so on. Because without direct examination, it cannot be ascertained whether the condition you are experiencing is really one of the options above, or outside of it, or in fact it doesn't matter at all.
Meanwhile, keep a healthy lifestyle, stay away from smoking, dust and pollution, exercise regularly, drink lots of water and get adequate rest. So, hopefully it answers your question.
