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.

Regards,
