A doctor will typically diagnose a lung nodule with an x-ray or CT scan. The spots will appear as white shadows on the imaging results. Lung nodules show up on at least one out of every 500 x-rays, according to statistics. Lung nodules are often harmless but can also indicate serious medical conditions.
