What Is a Noncalcified Lung Nodule?

Answer

A non-calcified lung nodule is a spherical lesion, up to 3 cm in size, which is totally enveloped in lung tissue. It should not worry you much as they are just lumps, made up of very small bits of calcium, which are usually benign or non-cancerous. Doctors will just observe it to see if it will grow though it usually is not dangerous.
