Scattered Nodules, Lesions, and Fissure..non-smoker

I got my CT back that I have scattered nodules (around 5 I believe) and tiny lesion and a fissure all under 5mm on my right lung. I have read that these are common in certain areas- and I am from a small rural coal mining community in SW VA. My question is that for about 1.5 months now I feel like a swelling on my right side either under or to the right of my right ribcage--feels like a bloating feeling that goes up and down. Well it actually feels like it sits right below the bottom of my bra line..I don't have a gallbladder or appendix--and abdomen CT scan was fine--could this be related to my lung or does it sound more muscular? They advised if I was low risk for me to follow up in a year and have another CT scan. I am 37- never smoked- but use to work in clubs with second hand smoke Does this seem like something I should worry about with the small lesion and fissure?
