I received this ct report from the dr asking if there is any mass tumor or cancer he replays no no indication of that but when I get the written report this is what it says
Cut of chest was performed using high resolution tech and reformatted in coronal Sagittarius views. There is thickening of the bronchial walls and early bronchiectatic changes in the lung bases no evidence of infiltrates or effusion there is some fullness on the right hilar area a soft tissue mass would be difficult to exclude with out if contrast this could also represent stele tasks no evidence of hilar or mediastinal lymphadenopathy seen the trachea esophagus and bronchi are patent the heart and pericardial are within normal limits the main pulmonary artery and aorta are normal the visualized proximal abdominal organs appear to be grossly normal

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. The CT report is normal. There are many benign reasons for hilar lymphadenopathy. So no worries. Talk to a pulmonologist and let thems ooth your worries.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
