Thanks for writing to us.
Suspicious densities in upper lung fields could be due to a chronic infection like tuberculosis, pneumonia, a benign lesion or a tumor. A detailed physical examination and investigations like MRI will help in specific diagnosis.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
