Hello and welcome to MedHelp's forums.  We appreciate your question and apologize for any delay in receiving an answer.  Lung nodules are vey common with 1 out of every 4 CT scns showing them and 90 percent of the time they are benign.  Yours are small.  Are you a smoker? Here is some general information. https://www.nationaljewish.org/conditions/lung-nodules

We also urge you to speak to your doctor for an analysis of your test findings.  Let us know how you are doing.

It is common for patients to have pulmonary nodules detected 0n CT. Follow-up is based on Fleischner Society guidelines (if age greater than 35 years old and no history of cancer). Your pulmonary nodules are tiny. If low risk for lung cancer, no follow-up is necessary. If high risk for lung cancer (e.g., history of smoking), consider follow-up CT chest in 12 months.
