Lung Nodule on Abdominal CT

Hello - I have a question and I hope someone can help me here. Last Wednesday I had an Abdominal CT without contrast looking for kidney stones and everything looked good except they found a 4 MM oval nodule at the base of my left lung. They told me not to worry about it that many people have them and to recheck it with an x-ray in 12 month. Fast forward to Saturday. I was having bad stomach pains and had to go to the ER at our local hospital and another CT with dye was done to see if there was something wrong with my umbilical hernia. I told him I just had a CT scan but b/c it was at another hospital they had to do another one. Everything again looked good, but on this report it reads lung bases are clear. I am very confused about this. I see my oncologist for my thyroid and am going to tell her about this, but one CT shows one there and the other says I am clear?!?! Any suggestions??
