Diagnosed with bacterial infection. On antibiotics. Done chest X ray, right hilum is bulky. Meaning?
i WAS RECENTLY DIAGNOSED WITH A BACTERIAL INFECTION WHICH A GOOD DOSE OF ANTIBIOTICS CLEARED UP. THANK GOD...i AM A 74 YEAR OLD HEALTHY AND ACTIVE WOMAN. RESULTS OF CHEST X-RAYS SHOWED EVERYTHING NORMAL EXCEPT FOR "RIGHT HILUM IS BULKY". i HAVE CONSULT COMING UP WITH MY DR, BUT WONDERING WHAT THIS PHRASE MAY INDICATE???
There can be many causes for bulky rt hilum. The commonest is a prominent Rt pul artery or enlarged hilar nodes. A CT chest can throw more light on it. Consult your pulmonologist as he will advice you your next course of action.
