Husband with "density on lungs"

My husband was in the emergency room a year and a month ago (chest pains)and had a chest xray. Apparently, there was a lung "density" that showed up on his right upper lobe. He went to the doctor a couple of weeks ago and had a chest xray and they called and asked how the followup went with the chest xray from March, 2012 because his xray was showing that lung "density" still. Well, fact is, nobody told him about it a year ago although his record noted that he should be advised to see a lung doctor.

What is a lung density? I'm scared out of mind. They are ordering him a CAT scan. He used to smoke but quit 7 years ago. He had a chest xray around 12/11 when he was cleaning and inhaled a lot of chemicals and got sick. Nothing showed on that xray but did 3 months later.
