My husband recently had a chest xray because his tb test came back possitive... (this was for immigration). They called and said they needed to do another view because the saw a spot on his lung. They did the other view but found that to be ok. There was no further explaination and he was sent on his way with the paperwork he needed for his appointment in april. My question is this something we should be worried about or could it be nothing. He has no symptoms of any kind and feels good. Thank you.
