    The visible shows scarring (fibrosis) in both lungs...many cases cause is unknown. It would depend on your history.

    The increased density can be caused by fluid, blood, abnormal cells, tumour or infection.

    Have you seen a pulmonologist?
    Have you had a sputum test?
    A nose swab to see if you have staph infection there?
    Sinus x-rays?

    This is a continuation of your other post....would you mind to put these results there as well so that your situation can be followed by those who answered (for a more complete understanding).
