My husband had a CT scan of his chest 3 times, all the times it showed something but this time it showed an existing nodule in the right lung and a new nodule measuring 4 mm in the right upper lobe. The left lower has hazy markings. My husband is a former
Need evaluation: He would need further evaluation. The fact that he is a former smoker, still gives him significant risk for lung cancer.
