Ct scan showed very small lung nodule. I've had 3 chest x-rays prior and nothing showed on them. What happens now? How to determine if it's cancer?
Depends: If the nodule is very small, it would not be seen in a plain x-ray so the fact you had 3 prior negative ones does not mean much. You may have had it undetected for years.
