Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
the vast majority of 3-7mm lung nodules are benign granuloma scar tissue in your lungs which usually resolve in 6-12 months time.
scar tissue in the lungs can come from smoking or prior smoke or pollution damage to the lungs or prior lung infections like pneumonia or bronchitis.
some granulomas can light up on CT Scan with contrast
I would get a copy of your chest CT scans.
I would be happy to review your scan reports with you
let me know if you have questions.
