Yes, very: 96% of nodules found in a study of screening ct scans were not lung cancer. While we don't know for sure what they were, its almost certain that many were granulomas, a type of scar often caused by "histo". In some areas of the country almost half the population has lung nodules detectable on a ct and histo gets blamed for many of them, with or without proof. It usually requires no treatment. ...Read more

How common are lung nodules? Is it common for a nonsmoker to have 3 pulmonary nodules with no current illness symptoms except a cough?
Fairly common: If you took 100 people at random off the street and did a CT scan of their chest, 25 of them would have nodules. Non-smokers can have nodules. Most nodules do no cause any symptoms at all and you would never know they are there unless you had a chest CT for some reason (or abdominal CT and it was picked up on the lower lung fields) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Follow with PCP: You need your doctor to guide you. Any opacities in lungs need to be further investigated as to the cause. Lung nodules may or may not be related.

Ct chest scan showed several small 2 mm noncalcified but stable pulmonary nodules in both lungs.Should i be concerned. What symptoms could this cause?
