@joelars – Good morning. I'm sorry to hear that you have been ill. I had pneumonia a couple of years ago and it wasn't fun. I am a 22+ year lung cancer survivor with COPD and Emphysema. @ethanmcconkey is correct in his definition of perihilia infiltrate. The denser than air is a fancy schmancy term for pus, protein, or blood. They are very common and associated with pneumonia and a couple of other lung illnesses. I imagine that the medicines that you were sent home with will help get rid of them and that you will be feeling much better sooner than later.

my fear is they misread infiltrate and it is really a tumor. The docs in the hospital weren't very concerned, but how likely is it that it is a tumor?
