Multiple Bilateral Subcentimeter Pulmonary Nodules and
I am a 59 year old female with a history of interstitial lung disease and a mild ventilatory defect.

Recently, I had a chest CT/contrast study preformed which disclosed a number of matters not noted on a scan preformed 4 years earlier.  The new findings are as follows: A 2 cm nodule in the anterior mediastium at the level of the branchial cephalic veins which appeared to be a cyst.  A number of small partially calcified subcarinal lymph nodes, and 9 noncalcified bilateral nodules ranging in size from 2.7mm to 7.2mm.

Obviously, I am concern.  It has been suggested that I have another scan performed in 6 months.  

Is this indicative of something?  If so what?  Any suggestions?

Thanks

Interstitial lung disease (ILD) can be associated with all the findings you have described.  Following you closely with respect to  lung examinations, lung function tests and repeat CT scans of the lungs are all part of following this problem over time.  Scarring and nodules are not uncommon with ILD.
