Follow up scan: what are the size of the tiny nodules to be precise here? if they are so small like a few mm only, there is nothing much you can do at this time anyway as biopsy would likely not be able to be done due to the limited size. No need to worry at this time. people can have scarring or granuloma which can be presented as small lung nodules. You definitely need to get a follow up CT scan to compare them
