Lung nodules : Are very common and the vast majority are not cancer (over 95%). A growing nodule has to be evaluated as if it is cancer until proven otherwise. This usually means a pet scan followed by surgery if it is "avid" or further tests (biopsy, serial ct scans) if it is not.

You need to see a doctor in any event. ...Read more

TB: The most likely cause would be healed tuberculosis in which case you should have a positive TB skin test or blood test such as quantiferon TB gold test.
