The nodule: may not have been commented on in the first scan, but it was noticed in the second CT. When the interpreting radiologist saw the nodule, he probably reviewed the old one and found it there too. A stable nodule is often a good thing in the right context. Talk to your doctor with any questions.

Take this to your DR: I think this is important to review the discrepancy. Often your doctor can clarify by having a radiologist look at it on the phone and reviewing it together, but this definitely needs clarifying. By the way, lung nodules are VERY common, many are benign (non-cancerous).
