Hi,
How are you? Do you have symptoms like prolonged cough, blood sputum, weight loss or night fever? Lung fibrosis or scarring of the lung may be caused by infection or inflammation of the lung. If there is history of pulmonary tuberculosis and you were not able to finish the complete course of medicine, further evaluation of the upper lobe opacity may need to be done to rule out if infection is still active or not. Sputum examination may also be done. It is best that you talk to your attending physician for proper evaluation. A referral to a pulmonologist may also be done. Take care and do keep us posted.
