What questions should I ask the doctor?

Last week they found a lung nodule while doing an x-ray for a broken rib. At the time the doctor told me she would watch it but it is probably not cancerous. She went back and looked at the CT scan for the broken rib. After looking at that she said she wants me to come in for a discussion about the nodule.

What questions should I ask the doctor? I have a great doctor that listens and I want to make sure I get all the information. I have never smoked and recently my uncle, a non smoker, died from lung cancer. Is there any genetic connections?

At this point I am not concerned but I want to make sure I am prepared when I go in. Thank you very much!
