Had a CT scan today. Its say's emphysema you please tell me what this means?

I just had a CT scan and in the results it says.... There is lung emphysema. There is a right apical heterogenous density spanning about 17mm (axial image 15 of series 5 and coronal image 57 of series 7) What does this mean and is it serious? and should I be worried?
