Devastated

I went to the Dr. yesterday because I noticed that about 3 weeks ago I was getting shortness of breath. They did their usual routine, checked ears, nose , throat, etc. She even said my lungs sounded good. Well, as a precaution, she had chest x-rays taken. She found 2 nodules and possibly a third. She couldn't tell because of the way it was situated around my heart. She explained that not all nodules are cancer, but she couldn't explain the shortness of breath, which of course, leads me to believe the worst. I go today for a CT scan, so hopefully I'll know more. Please tell me what to expect. I don't know anyone personally who's gone thru this. I'm a 43 yr. old male and I considered myself to be fairly healthy. I don't really feel that bad, just the shortness of breath,. It doesn't happen all the time. I don't have a chronic cough, don't spit up blood. Is that a good sign? Thanks in advance.
