I hope you are not a smoker because prominent broncho vascular markings are seen in them. Do you suffer from any allergy or have recurrent chest infections. If you are a smoker, you should quit at the earliest, otherwise nothing more needs to be done presently.

you need not worry for the prominent bronchovascular markings as respiratory infection you have suffered recently may be the reason for its promonence and it will subside. As long as you are not symptomatic no need to worry.Hope i have answered your doubt.
