pleural based nodule

Hello-
Two questions:
CT scan showed a pleural based nodule .4cm on right lung.  What does pleural based mean?  
Also, I have lymph nodes less than 10mm in size in the precarinal region.  Doctor says will follow-up with another CT in 6mos to 1yr.  How worried should I be?  I had a cold when the CT was done, don't know if that make any difference.

(I am a smoker trying to quit and I was also diagnosed with osteoporosis)
