Lung CT scan showed small areas of ground glass opacity on upper rt. lobe consistent with mild pneumonitis. Is this cancer? When should I repeat scan

In brief: Depends

on size of lesions and risk factors such as smoking.
However, first follow up scan is typically in 3 months. More scans will follow, usually every 12 months, to make sure no cancer present.
