I took a chest xray and there is a 4mm nodular density in the right lower lung feild seen only in the pa view. There is no pleural effusion. The remaining lung is clear. Can you please help me understand this. I have no coughing, nothing....

i think you'd benefit from CT-Scan....that can show the nature of this nodularity. What was the cause that made you do the CXR?
