Hello and hope you are doing well.

It could be calcifications, crystals are found in rare cases of a fungal infection of the lungs. CT scans find abnormalities in about 20 to 60 percent of smokers and former smokers, but most of these abnormalities are scars from inflammation or other noncancerous conditions. So, don't worry and if can get back with the findings can elaborate further.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
