scarring in the lung apices

I recently had a Sonogram and the results showed the same scarring in the lung apices. I have been suffering for over 5 1/2 months a sore throat and swelling of my throat, mainly on my left side of my neck. I have been to eight doctors. None have volunteered a problem. Had a second Sonogram yesterday, awaiting for the results. I had spine surgery three years ago. The entry point of the surgery is where the pain and swelling is. Anyone have any info?

Re: Mild Scarring in Lung Apices

Did any of you find information? I had a Ct Scan done four years ago that mentioned scarring in the lung apices but no doctor cared to mention it to me. I am 28 years old and have no respiratory problems except I have suffered with asthma (Bronchio asthma) once a year since I was little due to a cold and it only last for days and would go away. I did live in a basement for a couple of years that did have a lot of moisture but i still did not have issues breathing then or now. Did you find out if this is serious? Will it progress? Will we eventually die from Fibrosis?
