I have had spots on my lung since 2004, 2007, 2010 x-rays and 2012 CT scan showed they are slightly larger now. What are the possible diagnoses?

In brief: Many

First thing is histoplasmsis.
This causes multiple small nodules. It sounds like your doctor is following this: http://www.Med.Umich.Edu/rad/res/fleischner-nodule.Htm which is the best way to follow these nodules. Hopefull, you've quit (or never were) smoking, and you're keeping a very good eye on them.
