Hello dear

Welcome to
I have evaluated your query thoroughly .

* This seems in relation with possible chest inflammation .

* Need extensive evaluation with x-ray chest , CT chest , pulmonary
function test , series of laboratory tests including all blood gas analysis

* Because unless the diagnosis is not confirmed how one can manage
to decide course of action and treatment cost .

Hope this clears your query .
Regards .
