thankyou sir,
with above mentioned findings on xray chest of yours
blunting of cp angle could be due to pleural effusion or due to pleural thickening but in your case it could be thickening as there is pulling of trachea to tjhe same side and crowding of ribs to the same side and apical pleural thickening too,and the deformity is the end result of all these, yes you may get cured with the medicines after you run some other tests to know wats the cause for all those findings ,commonly it could be atubercular infection, consult your g.p and run some other blood teests, ppd etc...
thank you
