Hello and welcome to justanswer,I shall be consulting you today.

Thank you for your patience.

Expert:  Medicaldoctor replied 1 month ago.

So this spot seen on x ray is a pulmonary nodule which is harmless and benign in majority of the cases.

It is caused by lungs infections as in your case due to chronic bronchitis.

There is nothing to be worried at all as it does not cause any harm.

If your symptoms change suddenly or if you notice any blood while coughing or other alarming signs like significant weight loss only then you should have further tests.

At the moment there is nothing to be concerned.

I hope this helps
