Adhesion: Most adhesions are the harmless remnants of a prior infection like bronchopneumonia. Your physician should review the xray with the radiologist and ask for advice as to whether this finding is concerning, or whether additional studies like a chest ct scan, or referral to a pulmonologist would be advisable.
