Trying hard not to panic

I had a visit to the ER last night for an unrelated problem and they did a chest x-ray and the doc said the only thing she found was a nodule on one of my lungs. She said I should follow up with my doctor and have him do another x-ray in 3 months to see if it is still there and sent me on my way like it was no big deal.
Is it? What is a nodule? What is it doing in my lung? Should I be freaking out? I have 5 kids! Ever heard of this? I do not smoke by the way.
