hi friend,
the clinical history suggests old healed fibrotic(scar) changes in the upper zone..this scar like tissue cannot be removed..its a healed no panic of disease..this scar mostly because of old cured TB infection..TB sometimes cured spontaneously without any medicine...that cured TB infection left scar tissue,which may persists in your lungs for the rest of your can ask any radiologist or your Family physician to issue certificate explaining this scar matter.thank you.
