Thanks for posting your query.
Bulky hila might be suggestive of a minor lymph node enlargement due to allergic causes. This can happen in patients having a history of allergic disorders like asthma. This finding is not worrisome in the absence of any clinical signs and symptoms.
Such minor lymph node variations are not clinically significant.
Please do not worry.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
