what does a ct with multiple left inferior cervical linfonods and pulmonary nodules with no calcifications (< 0, 5cm) means?

Probably nothing: Enlarged lymph nodes and pulmonary nodules are extraordinarily common. You should follow up with your doctor and follow up on any tests they recommend, but most often these are completely benign.

Varies: They may all be normal (if the nodes are small enough) or it may indicate a problem. Main thing: why was the ct done? Discuss with your doctor - there are many causes ranging from an infection (new or old), sarcoidosis, thyroid cancer, lymphoma, another type of cancer. One would have to examine you and see the scan to make an intelligent diagnosis.
