X ray report

I had an X ray 3 weeks ago. The radiologist's report are as follows:


The bronchovascular markings are prominent but no focal consollidation is seen.

There is a 3.7 x 2.2 cm opacity in the left suprahilar region, suspicous for a mass lession.
Comparison with any previous film (if available) is suggested.
A CT scan is also suggested for further evaluation.

The heart is not enlarged. Both costophrenic sulci are intact. No pleural effusion is detected.

So, today I gave the my previous x ray film taken on November 2010. Now the radiologist's report are as follows:

A left suprahilar lession is seen in both chest radiographs.
There is no significant interval change between the two images.
The mass is mildly lobulated but fairly well defined with minor surrounding fibrosis.
Small internal calcifications are detected.
A minimal haze at the cardiac apex is due to a fat pad. Lung fields are otherwise clear.
The heart size is normal.

Probable granuloma in the left suprahilar region.
No significant interval change is noted. Clinical correlation is suggeted.

Now, my questions are:
1. Since I was treated with TB on 2003, I had no symptoms ever since, thus this mean I still have TB?
2. Or thus this mean I have tumor or cancer?
3. And lastly, do I still need a CT scan?

Thank you and I hope to get some answers soon.

Re: X ray report

Unfortunately I can't answer 1 or 2 but can comment on 3. I had a cyst removed from behind my heart and can tell you that had it not been for a CT scan I'd still have doctors wondering where my pain was coming from. Those scans can clear up or at least confirm what sometimes X Rays can't, at least that's what I have learned through my surgery and my wife's. I hope you get the answers your looking for!
