In India most common cause of such presentation is pulmonary tuberculosis, if you are not having any constitutional symptoms of tuberculosis then the lesions are mostly healed old tuberculosis; but still if you have doubt about your status you can go for Sputum for Mycobacterial culture and ZN staining tests to confirm about disease activity if any.
