Small bibasilar pleural effusions
This is what the x-ray summary states:
XR CHEST PA/LAT
CLINICAL INDICATION:  BRADYCARDIA
EXAM DESCRIPTION:  Chest erect PA and lateral 07/23/2012
COMPARISON:  07/10/2012
INDICATION: Short of breath
FINDINGS:  The heart size is at the upper limits of normal.  The pulmonary
vascular markings are within range of normal.  There were small bilateral
pleural effusions.  There is no focal consolidation.  Calcified granuloma was
seen in the left upper lobe.  Old deformity the distal right clavicle is seen.
IMPRESSION:  Small bibasilar pleural effusions.

What does this mean?  Could this be lung cancer.  I am an ex-smoker of 6 years after smoking 1 pack per day for 20 years.
My doctors will only say it is a normal x-ray!

Hi there!
This does not appear to be cancer and the changes described are more likely to be due to past infection/ inflammation and current inflammation and appears to be within normal limits.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
