What does an Old Fibrotic Scar on the chest x-ray report mean?

Posted by fepl

Dear Sir,

My grandma (65yrs) just got her chest x-ray done which showed her to have an Old Fibrotic TB in her left upper region and , also her mammogram showed asymmetric lymph nodes in her upper left region and the CT Scan showed her to have a small patch 2 cms in just below her left shoulder. I would like to know if it means that it is a scar of some past infection or it could be inactive TB germs in the patch and nodes.Please advise us.
