Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I am glad that you got your CT scan of your chest and put your report up here. I am not sure how to explain that in a layman's language but the bottomline is that your investigation report reads that your chest is normal. You do not need to do anything further unless you have a functional chest abnormality like wheezing, asthma, etc, which may not be detected in an CT scan. I hope you visit with a pulmonologist with this report.

I hope this helped and I wish you the very best. Take care!
