Hi,
How is your brother? Lung nodules  or small masses of tissue in the lung are common and are usually benign.  It is good that the the biopsy result was negative.  Monitoring of the nodule for any change in size, shape or appearance is usually done with this finding. It is best that you discuss the results with his doctor for proper evaluation. Factors such as your brother's medical history, presence of symptoms and results of other diagnostic tests and physical examination are important considerations also. Take care and best regards.
