Help! Lung Nodule Question!!

Hello. I am a 28 year old female, non-smoker and I have been experiencing shortness of breath (on exertion) and chest pain for a few years now. I have done a ton of tests to try to figure out what is going on. Last year (June 2012) I had a chest CT scan and they found 2 nodules on my lungs, one on each lung, appx 3mm in size. I had an MRI done this July 2013 and the nodule on the left lung has grown from 3mm to 7mm. Should I be concerned????? I don't know if this growth rate is normal, any input would be appreciated.

Hi, real quick...haven't you had a biopsy? I know that was the first things they did with my nodules. I would ask for one. I have apparently got a complicated case, (just got diagnosed) so I can't really help, but to say, if it bugs you enough to come to the forum, get the docs buns in gear!!
God bless and good luck, Dana

I just got the results from my doc last week. I have an appointment with him on 9/11 to see what he tells me will be the next step. Thank you for your response and I hope you had good news with your biopsy
