Can you explain the x-ray report? Lesions of PTB, bullous formation

hello doctor, I dun understand abt my X-ray result. pls explain to me is it a serious case or not?
My result is: The right lung is extensively devoid of vascular markings in the upper and lower zones. The changes may be due to extensive bullous formation or to large loculated pneumothoraces.
- Lesions suspicious of PTB on CXR
- 10 days trial of Antibiotics shows no interval change
- FBC/ESR not done
Is it TB? I'm afraid of that. but dun understand the medical terms. pls reply to me as soon as possible.
Thanks a lot.

You could be having bullous disease of the lungs or it could be localized pneumothorax ie air collection between the lung and its thin membrane called pleura. There may be features of TB in additiion or the bullae may be giving such an appearance. You should undergo a CT chest which may help in delineating the exact pathology.
