Chest x-ray showed density in lungs. Worried

My 2mos. Old had a chest xray done today and I was told that there is some density in his lungs. What could this mean. He has rapid breathing and on occasion gasps for sir. The Dr. Checked his oxygen level and said they se to be fine but after receiving the resilts of xray wants to run a swallow test. My baby is thriving and seems healthy and happy. Im worried sick.

Hi Mm
Your child is thriving well healthy and happy. Need not to worry much, shadow may be of overgrown thymus gland which is self limiting with the age.
Because your child is having rapid breaths and often gasp for air. your doctor wants to be sure about any growth or obstructing feature in or nearby the wind pipe of the baby.
