Child with lung nodule

My 10 year old son has a 4mm lung nodule which was found through a CT scan (after many weeks of off and on abdominal pain).  The CT reports says benign and mentions fluid.  The Pediatrician wants him to have a second CT scan after 6 months to check for change.  He is due to have that CT scan within 3 weeks.  What questions should I ask about the nodule?  I am worried, but don't know what the best questions are.  I'm wondering if a CT scan report can determine whether or not the nodule is benign?  It would help to have a list of questions to ask the Doctor in February.  Thank you so much.
