I underwent a medical examination as a requirement to work in KSA. I found out that I have upper right lobe scarring.what does this mean?i am a non-smoker.I did not have any respiratory disease since childhood.Can this result fail me to pass and work abroad?
"Scarring" usually means to a radiologist that there is something in your lungs that has been there for a long time and is probably due to prior infection (sometimes you may not even know about it) - can be caused by a pneumonia or bad bronchitis for example.
I do not know the criteria to pass for work in KSA -- not familiar myself but consider asking your doctor who may know better. Hope this helps. Best regards,
