What is a low density mass on posterior of kidney?

I went to the hospital for tests (mainly for heart).  During a CT Chest with contrast a "1-1.3 cm round low desity mass in the posterior aspect of the left kidney that should be further characterized with ultrasound." was discovered.  I have had more than a dozen kidney stones (am 40 years old, 5'8 1/2", 181 lbs, non smoker).  I have not been experiencing any discomfort or pain.  Could this be related to kidney stones?  I am scheduled to have an MRI next week.  Any suggestions?  They also found a subcentimeter soft tissue nodule in the right costophrenic sulcus and I am following up with a lung specialist next week.  My sister died 6 months ago from lung cancer that had metastisized to brain...bones, etc.  This is very worrisome.....But my heart was fine.
