Pleural effusion.: If no etiology for the pleural effusion was identified on the first pass, then another round of thinking and testing may be necessary. A pleural effusion is not a diagnosis unto itself - it hints to another process occurring - this process needs to be identified. You should revisit your doctor and continue investigations until an answer, or list of answers, is reached.

Yes: Rarely, the fluid collection gets walled in and become fixed. But otherwise the collection will fill the lower parts first on gravitational force.
