What does increased lung markings in a report indicate? - Online Doctor Chats
Hello, I live in China and had X-Ray done with the findings in Chinese. I managed to translate everything but one part is a bit tricky. What I translated is: No lung parenchymal disease, Hilar is usual form, both diaphragmatic surfaces complete, costophrenic angle sharp, thoracic symmetry, mediastinal, trachea as usual. The confusing bit is: both(two) lungs markings increase(d), wide....or somewhat to that effect translation Is it something to worry about?
Let me read your query
Please wait a moment
I have read your query
this is a grossly normal chest x-ray report
ok is that all?
the increase in lung markings can be normal finding as well
Yes, nothing to be worried about
my city is extremely polluted, I've lived here for 2 years. Could this be the reason
You may want to repeat the x-ray after 3 months, but it is not required
2 x-rays once in 6 months can be done per year
well I believe that's all.
Also, do you smoke?
thank you very much
thank you too

shall we end the chat now?
Do you have any more queries?
wish you good health
