Hi Anon,

Thank you for being a part of the EmpowHER community and sharing your question.

Pulmonary nodules ( small round or oval-shaped growth in the lung generally smaller than 3 centimeters in diameter) can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous).

The most common cause is clumps of inflamed tissue.  Here is some additional information on the Causes of Lung Nodules.

I hope this helps.

Be well,
