Hard to say: Do you have significant risk for lung cancer? Are you a smoker? If yes, you need to stop smoking . The lung nodule is likely sarcoidosis of the lung although if you are also a heavy smoker, lung cancer is possible. I will suggest you to have a follow up ct scan to ensure stability if it is rapidly growing, while your sarcoidosis is quite without symptom perhaps biopsy can be considered then.
