I was struck in the right shin by an iron bar two years ago. Since then I have had swelling in my right foot, ankle and shin area. I have been to the doctors twice about it but they just gave me antibiotics which has done nothing. Now I am also noticing swelling in the left foot, ankle and shin area. I am nearly 50, male and overweight. I do exercise by riding a bicycle 5kms a day 5 times a week and I also do weights for 20 minutes a day 5 times a week. However, I have only been doing this for the past couple months. In general my health seems ok.

Hi,

This is for my father who is 68 years old. He recently got a chest x-ray done and here are the reports:

Blunting of right costophrenic angle noted ‎? ‎pleural effusion ‎/ ‎thickening‎.‎
Both the lung fields are equally translucent‎.‎
The left costo‎-‎phrenic angle is clear‎.‎
No hilar or mediastinal mass is seen‎.‎
Domes of diaphragm are normal in position and contour‎.‎
The cardiac outline is normal‎.‎
No obvious skeletal abnormality is seen‎.‎

Can you please tell me what this means? Should we be alarmed by pleural effuison? My father is otherwise healthy, active and a non-smoker.
