Chest xray there was mild, minimal interstitial scarring -no sign of focal consolidation. I have never smoked. Will it go away or get more serious?

Chest xray there was mild, minimal interstitial scarring -no sign of focal consolidation. I have never smoked. Will it go away or get more serious?

Depends...: Sometimes, the changes you are referring to are the result of a prior problem, like a prior pneumonia, and the changes do not progress. If the x-ray findings don't change over a 2 year interval, they are considered benign. So, it is helpful if you have an old chest x-ray to compare it to.

Having a chest xray with "no focal consolidation and no pleural effusion" means that it is clear. You could still have copd. ...Read more
