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.
