Crackles or creaking sound in right lung
HI, I have light crackles in right lung base when I lie down in a stretched position only. And Even when I hold my breath, and push my central lung area, the crackles come and go. When I change my position even little bit, they dissappear. No chest pain is present. The crackles are occasional. is this a cause of concern or anything serious.
