Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
No Xolair doesn't cause nodules. What you have to do is 1. PET scan 2. Repeated X-ray or CT for seeing nodule growth 3. CT guided Fnac or biopsy for histopathology 4. A regular visit to the pulmonologist
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
