Hi there,
According to the report of your chest X-ray mentioned by you,everything appears normal.As for the right hilar prominence,it could be normal as being as such from you childhood and revealed now cause you got yourself X-rayed for the first time.If the right hilar prominence has some pathological reason,some inflammation,then I would suggest you to go for CT-scan as this will identify any reason for the right hilar prominence,minutely.More over,if you do not present with any respiratory or cardiac ailment ,then right hilar prominence in your case could be ralax and consult your doctor.take care.
