I have just had a ct scan of my upper abdomen due to chest

Resolved Question:

I have just had a ct scan of my upper abdomen due to chest pain and constant shortage of breath. (Previous chest x-ray was normal) The result was normal except for small linear opacities in the right and left lung bases. Said to be due to either atelectic or fibrotic changes.

As I have previously had breast cancer, should this be of concern?

Dr Brims :

This is not a concern , if it were cancer the CT scan would likely have picked it up
