X-rays Show Bronchitis?

Hello Yudistira, Thank you for your question to HealthReplies.com.
What complaints did you experience? Have you consulted your doctor who recommended an X-ray examination after receiving an X-ray? X-ray examination results can not always be interpreted separately. Information about your complaints, doctor's examinations, and other supporting tests is needed so that your doctor can make a diagnosis of the disease.
Your x-ray results show bronchitis. Bronchitis is inflammation of the main respiratory tract (bronchi). Bronchitis can be divided into acute bronchitis and chronic bronchitis. Acute bronchitis is more common in children, usually caused by a viral infection while chronic bronchitis is more common in adults. This disease is characterized by symptoms of cough that lasts more than one week, sore throat, shortness of breath, chest pain. A person is more at risk of developing bronchitis if he has the habit of smoking or becoming a passive smoker, does not receive influenza vaccine, is exposed to harmful substances, has a low immune system, and has stomach acid disease.
Due to limited information regarding complaints and physical examinations by your doctor, you are encouraged to consult with your doctor again who recommends this examination. The doctor will determine further treatment according to your condition. For now, please avoid smoking and avoid exposure to cigarette smoke or smoke from other hazardous materials.
Hopefully this information is useful.
