A lung nodule is an abnormality in the lung that is smaller than 3 centimeters in diameter. A lung nodule must grow to at least 1 centimeter (size of a pea) in diameter before it can be seen on a chest X-ray. CT scans can detect nodules less than 1 centimeter in size. Lung nodules are surrounded by normal lung tissue and are not associated with any other abnormality in the lung or nearby lymph nodes.
