Lung Nodules

A lung nodule is a small mass that can show up as a spot on the lung during a CT scan or chest X-ray. The good news is that finding out you have a lung nodule is not cause for panic — fewer than 5% of all nodules are cancerous. Still, when should you worry about lung nodules if you have them?
