I am a 38 year old female non-smoker. In Dec. 2008 I was hospitalized with pneumonia where it was discovered that I have 3 small nodules in my lungs. I had a CT scan 4/09 and 10/09 which showed no changes. I just had another CT Scan 4/10 and one nodule has increased from 4mm to 5mm. It is in the lower right lobe. I also have RA. After meeting with my Dr. he said not to worry that it could be due to RA nodules and that we will follow-up with a CT in 4 months. I am very frightened! Is this something to really be concerned about or is it possibly due to RA or just a benign nodule?
