Post lung nodules ?

Does anyone here have any experience with lung nodules, granulomas? My chest x-ray shows I have lots of little nodules all over my lungs. The doc says they are not cancer anad is looking for another cause. Can he tell this from a chest x-ray?

Hello Veggie girl. I too have just had xrays which showed multiple lung nodules. I had to have the xray repeated 4 weeks later to double check. I have been told they are NOT lung cancer. They are scar tissue left behind from 10 years ago when I had chickenpox pneumonia. I have COPD. So please do not worry too much, I am sure your Doctor is correct. I did not need to go for any further tests after the xray. I hope this information helps to put your mind at rest. Ann.
