can having liver mass and lung nodules mean you have cancer?

Liver mass: No. Lung and liver nodules are common findings on ct scan. Depending on clinical setting no treatment may be indicated other than a follow up ct. In some cases where suspicion is high, a biopsy is needed to rule out or rule in cancer.

Possible: But not sure without tissue biopsies. There are individual lesions and associated benign lesions.

Possible: What you described is not normal, but quite possible. Small cell lung cancers can spread to other organs even before the primary lesion is detected.
