It most likely: refers to an inactive Tuberculosis infection...in many areas of the world a quite common finding however
your Primary Care Provider might wish you to have additional testing and possibly some (preventative) medication! Ask him/her!!
Hope this is helpful

Lung scarring.: This finding suggests that there is/was a process inflaming/scarring the top sections of your lungs. Could be something environmental. Occupational. Infectious. Requires clarification. You should bring this finding to a Pulmonologist for a full consideration.
