Lung nodules are the result of pneumonia caused by Valley Fever. Nodules are small residual patches of infection that generally appear as single lesions, typically one to one and one-half inches in diameter. Patients who have no symptoms as well as patients who do have symptoms may develop nodules. Approximately 5- 7% of patients with cocci pneumonia will form sharply circumscribed singular nodules. If it is documented that the nodule is caused by valley fever, no other treatment is required. However, because the nodule may appear to be cancer, a biopsy or removal may be necessary. Nodules caused by cocci may remain a life- time.
