thanks for ur query
as per ct report ur brother probably have lung cancer/cancer of other site which spread to lungs
for final confirm diagnosis ur docter may advise you for fnac or tissue biopsy.
lung cancers are more common in smokers
if u r residing in a tubercular endemic zone then first u have to rule out pulmonary tuberculosis
