I'm not a doctor, but it sounds like they've been concerned because there is fluid accumulated in your pleural spaces and they wanted to figure out what's probably causing it. Pleural effusion can be caused by many things (like heart failure, tuberculosis, pneumonia, other infections, trauma, surgery complications, some kinds of cancer, emboli, liver problems, etc.) In most cases, it's due to heart failure.
