Can anyone tell me what this means? I have copd and have nodule densities with irregular borders. They don't seem to change in size but I keep getting new ones. When they did the last chest xray they said I had ascending aorta measuring up to 6.7mm. Also said I have prominence of the aortopulmonary ***b. Don't have a clue to what this all means. It started out with waves of pain on my left side under rib cage. Took CT scans and have been doing so every 3-6 months since then. Anyone help me understand this. Thanks
