how much of a threat is this

Hi! I recently had an xray for pain to my R rib (after helping someone move). Came back contusion but found a 1cm nodular density projecting over the L lower lung fields. CT of chest in 2011 detected nothing on L but 6mm on R. Lung screening 2014 detected 4 to 5 mm on R and a new 3 to 4 mm on lower L. So if it is the same nodule lower L grew from 3 to 4 mm to 1 cm over 7 years. I am scheduled for follow up CT in 9 days. My dilemma is #1 that I am worried about this growth and #2 that I am scheduled to leave for Puerto Vallarta for 2.5 weeks.

This article gives a high-level introduction to precision medicine.
