Thanks for writing to us.
A spot of almost 1cm in size on the baby's lung could be due to an abnormal focus of calcification. It is not likely to be associated with any congenital malformations. Please do not worry. Most of the times it is a benign non progressive finding.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
