Thank you for the information.

This is what is referred to as a solitary pulmonary nodule .Your nodule is a centimeter long.

There are various causes that can result in a nodule like this.Your symptoms will help your doctor in coming to a diagnosis.A CT scan helps in giving further information about the nodule.

A nodule like your has to be followed up with another X ray after 3 months to look if it has increased in size or if it has resolved.
