white spot on left lung

I just recently had an ex ray and my Dr. said there was a white spot on the left side. She said it was most likely calcium deposite, and didn't seam too worried. Was is that? Should I have it checked out?

Re: whit spot on left lung

It may not be anything to worry about. A while after my lung surgery I developed 3 white spots but they haven't grown in size during the 3 years since. The Doc thinks they are calcified scar tissue. Your Doc will probably want to take x-rays at regular intervals to make sure they are not getting bigger.

Did she encourage you to get it checked out?
