I have had COPD, and have just found I have several lung nodules. Some are as large as 5mm in this one is not round but it is oddly formed. These were found 4 months ago and I just found out they were detected in a cervicahaCAT scan. They notified my doctor and said that I should have had a full lung CAT scan. What other conditions can cause this. Please help. I am aware nodules can be malignant.
I'm sorry you are going through this. Your doctors should order CT scans every 3-4 months for 2 years to watch the nodules for growth. They will do a pet scan if they get bigger than 1cm. Many things can cause nodules. I would talk with your doctor.
