12 years ago my mother had pneumonia and has suffered from respiratory problems ever since. Nothing life threatening, but irritating (cough, plem, constant throat clearing, voice loss, ect.). She was given a CT about 6 months ago and was told she had some scar tissue (some leisions and nodules), she was recently given another CT and was told there is now more scar tissue - not a massive amount but a slight elevation. What is this caused by? She was never a smoker or exposed to any of the things that cause Pulimnary Fibrosis. She has no trouble breathing, working out and will sometimes go for a day or two without any coughing jags before it comes back. She is now 65 and is worried about this recent finding.
