Hello

Your chest x-ray showed following:

Both the upper part of your lungs are fibrous ( dead lung tissue , but non harmful to body)

Both the apical ( upper part ) lung areas fibrosis means:

1.You had old Tuberculosis or had successfully treated.

2.Ankylosing spondylitis meaning your back hurts plus apical fibrosis

3.Old fungal infection like hisoplasmosis.

In any way you do-not seem to have any active issue with your lung neither can you spread any disease , you should not have a problem for getting employed like in which sitting work is done, though you cannot be employed for any profession that uses lungs primarily like running , swimming , police , fire briagde, sports etc

Besides i would recommend to have a pulmonologist review

Hope this helps
