I don't understand. Who ordered the x-ray & why who gave you the result and what was recommended ?
You meant Pleura thickening (pleura is the lining/membrane surrounding the lungs.
Is it related to exposure to asbestos? That's one of the main causes, but there are many other causes.
Unfortunately this is irreversible but after the underlying cause is identified, perhaps it can be treated.
The only treatment for the Pleura thickening is medication to help with managing the symptoms.

I hope this helps,
Niko

Are you sure it wasn't pleural thickening? What was the reason for the x-ray?
You should see a pulmonary doc.
