Brief Answer: Please consult pulmunologist. Detailed Answer: Hello! Thank you for the query. You should consult pulmunologist with this nodule. It can be a cyst, post inflammatory changes or even a cancer. If this was found in the X-ray, chest CT should be next. Bronchoscopy should be considered and samples collection to determine what exactly it is. Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions. Regards.
