Need more test: Xrays are notorious for missing diseases of the lungs, if i were you id ask my doctor for a cat scan, a referral to a specialists or go get a second opinion, most of the time its nothing.

Unknown: The national tree of radiology is the "hedge". This means when we see the word "equivocal" we as dr's are at a loss as to what the x-ray shows.A discussion with your dr as to travel history, living situation, work, and a lot of other facts must be explored.
