I’m assuming you had a chest x-ray done and the result showed left upper lobe suspicious opacity and mild dextroscoliosis of the thoracic spine.
The left upper lobe opacity could either be pneumonic or tuberculous infiltrates. This can especially be true if you are having symptoms like cough, fever, or difficulty in breathing. It may also mean previous lung infection that produced fibrosis in the left upper lobe of the lung and is evident on chest x-ray.
As for the dextroscoliosis, it means that the thoracic spine is somewhat rotated to the right. Patients with this condition complain of intermittent upper back pain.
Hope this helps.
