Lung cavity

Dear Folks!

Could use some information to help me get out of this very stressfull situation.

I have been diagnosed with ABPA and Bronciectisis for over 8 years. Had a CT scan last night and found 1.4cm cavity as well as some cystic lesions. is this a progression of my ABPA/Bronchiectisis or a something totally different? Do cavities just lay dormant as permanent lung damage or can they create additional health issues?? have read many articles and posts where some people have lived with large cavities over several decades. Is that quite normal?

Any additional information will be a hugely apprecaited.

God Bless
