Hi ! Do you have fever of low grade nature ? Is there any history of loss of weight and loss of appetite ? Sometimes unsuspected tubercular infection ( if it is common in your area) can give rise to similar symptoms and radiological findings. I would suggest you to discuss with your family physician on this angle when you meet him next so that further investigations may be done. Wishing you an early recovery.
