Question about the lungs

Could you please tell me what this means.....

"No significant hilar or axillary lymphadenopathy is identified.  Further evaluation of the lung parenchyma reveals no active infiltrates or lung parenchymal masses.  Mild biapical lund parenchymal scarring is noted.  No pleural effusions are identified.

Thanks much for your insights....:)

Hi,
How are you? What symptoms are present? Your xray result showed no significant swelling, infiltrates, mass or effusion.  The scarring noted may be due to previous   infection and should be correlated clinically if there are symptoms present. Discuss the results with your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and regards.
