small nodule on left lung

I have been sick since January and finally they did a chest x-ray and found a small nodule on my left lung, had a ct scan done the next day. The dr. called me and said they seen the same thing on the ct but it will just always be there and no further action will be taken. Now that worries me a bit how do they know its nothing by just the ct being done should I get a 2nd opinion?

It probably isn't too serious or your MD would have done more tests. You could talk with a pulmonary doctor if that would ease your mind.

Take care,
