enlarged hilar lymph node
I am a 40 year old non-smoker with asthma but normal lung function tests.  A recent move meant a new Dr. who wanted a routine chest x-ray which prompted a CT which showed a 1.8cm right hilar lymph node.  Had a bronchoscopy but test results are not back.  I am not sure what to think or if this could be serious, just looking for some general knowledge and direction.

This could be a very normal finding.  Depending on what it looked like on the CT, they may ask you to repeat the chest CT scan in 3 to 6 months.  It probably has nothing to do with your asthma.  It could be from an old infection.
