Enlarged lungs on chest X-Ray?

About 10 days ago I went in for a chest X-ray as a follow up to having pneumonia...they told me they were making sure that the infection was gone. Anyways, today I was told that X-ray showed I have enlarged lungs. Apparently this can be the result of taking a big breath and holding it which is what I was told to do OR it can be an indicator of serious lung disease. I am going to be sent to get a pulmonary function test. My doctor says it is most likely nothing as I have no other signs of lung disease and am only 40.
Has anyone been told a chest X-ray showed enlarged lungs...undergone further testing to find it was nothing?
