Chest X-ray at one center showed old healed calcification, X-ray at other center did not identify the same. Suggestion?

I have had a chest X ray recently for visa processing to KSA. The doc said there is one old healed calcification . I went for another x ray at a diagnostic center and the radiologist said all normal and no present or previous traces of infections. I need second opinion to examine the chest x rays and confirm which one is correct. can you help if I attach soft copies of x ray?

Dear Sirdhar

Either your Chest X ray had been changed by mistake or the lesion got hidden behind the boney shadow due to positional changes. However I can help further if you upload the chest xrays.
All the best.

Hello and thank you for your query
Yes, you can attach soft copy of your X-ray chest.
Before that I would like to know whether you have suffered from tuberculosis or any other chest infection in the past?

Hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks and take care
