Does this mean Fibrosis?

Breast cancer with right mastectomy, chemo and radiation. After radiation a scan showed a cloudiness in right lung. I was told it was from radiation and would be monitored and may go away. 5 years later I am told that I have RILI radiation induced lung disease, in other words the radiation that caused 2nd degree burns on my skin also damaged the lung tissue. I am asymptomatic, no coughing or breathing problems but my lung function has reduced. I exercise, cardio and strength training weekly. Walk quickly to slow jog regularly. I see a pulmonologist for surveillance. A lot is unknown about this. HTH.

After reading your response, I am wondering if my lung issue could be occurring due to surgery or scans of almost two years. Have attempted to go back before surgery to see if earlier PET Scans contained the same wording. Cannot find in my portal.
Thank you for your information.
