"FOCAL PNEUOMONITIS" is another way of describing a case of pneumonia ..an infection within the lung tissue...FOCAL means it would involve one segment or lobe of the lungs
A neoplastic process is generally referring to a cancer type growth or process. So this sounds that a rapid growth suspicious for a cancer may be considered as a finding within the lungs.
The description that you present is very vague. I am not diagnosing you with any cancer but the reference to a neoplastic process sounds that this may be a concern ...you have an abnormal lung picture or sounds with perhaps a differential diagnosis which may include pneumonia vs a cancerous type process...
You need follow up with your pulmonologist to discuss this study further...
