Radiologist Dr. Pranav's  Response
As i gathered from your proble that your friend's agge is 70 so the causes should be ---
1) Infection - Pneumonia, TB, etc
2) Mass Lesion - Cancer

Please mention of he is having fever , raised TLC counts, high ESR.

I think at this age you should evaluate this further with a CT scan if the above symptoms are not there.

Do revert.
Take care.
