Dear Sir,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that apical pleural thickening does not require any treatment . It would have resulted due to previous lung infection that has healed and does not require any treatment as if now .

Whenever lung pleura is affected by some infection it can result in thickening . But in case you are more concerned you can consult a physician for his opinion.

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
