Chest X ray is never specific for any disease. At worst, it causes you to do unnecessary test for additional diagnostic and comfort of knowing.

I'm a physician so I can help to ease your feeling:
1. Your trachea is normal since it is midline
2. Your heart is normal
3. You chest bone is normal
4. Suspicious opacities could mean a lot. It could mean Tuberculosis, tumor, or most of the time nothing serious. If you want answer, you need to do CT
5. The adhesion is most likely nothing serious as well.

Do you have cough, difficulty breathing, history of smoking? What is your age?
