why was the test done?
It could just be infection
especially if you have fever
Yes I read it. It said it could be "inflammatory" meaning related to infection
I realize that is a possibility

Not really. No.
they call atelectasis on xrays and CT scans all the time
doesn't mean much
It could be from both issues
cancer and infection
