The finding of 4.0 x 2.5 cm sized mass in the sub-carinal region is highly suspicious of cancer. There are lymph nodal masses in the right hilar region also.

Your father has to undergo a bronchoscopy or CT guided FNAC / biopsy to confirm or rule out cancer at the earliest.

Heterogenous infiltrates may be secondary infection in the lung.
