A:   Hello.
Welcome to Ask The Doctor. We understand your concern.

Such small mass can be pneumonia , lung mass, lymph node, and tuberculosis.
In such scenario, you would require to get a CECT Chest with FNAC of the mass done to rule out the issues.
In fact, you would also require a blood investigations and sputum examination along.
