Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking

There are a lot of causes for lung nodules like

granuloma, which are small clumps of cells that grow because of inflammation. noninfectious diseases that cause noncancerous nodules, such as sarcoidosis and rheumatoid arthritis. neoplasms, which are abnormal growths that can be benign etc

Your doctor makes you in follow up to control the number and the size of your nodes.In my opinion you should not be concerned at the moment. If it was something serious your doctor would have kept you informed about this issue.

Thank you for answering my question. Yes I have had a lot of bronchitis over the years which could have caused these come to think of it. I've never smoked but my parents did which is my concern also. It never hurts to get a second opinion when it involves a possibility of cancer.

Thanks again
