Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

You may have residual thymus gland in anterior mediastinum ( anterior chest space). This can be normal. However you also have lot of small lymph nodes just under the pleura or lung covering. This can be due to the recent infection or inflammation. No other significant finding. Why was the scan ordered?
