Had severe pneumonia, spots on lungs previously. Having bronchitis now. Related to spots in lungs?

My son had a severe case on pneumonia 6 years ago. He now has a light case and bronchitis . The doctors watch him pretty closely since he almost died. He was 31 when he was in the hospital. They did a chest x-ray and found a 2 spots on his lung . Can that be related to the infection he has now?? The doctor is having someone else look at the x-ray.
