Partner had stage II melanoma removed 3 years ago and has received CT scans and blood work every 4-6 months since then. He has several lung nodules but they've been stable this whole time. Now one of the lung nodules has increased in size fairly significantly since his last scan 6 months ago. Have any of you heard of something like this before?

Yes,

While everyone is different and it may not be related to Melanoma, my father was stage II with a stable lung nodule that stayed stable for about 8 years before it started to grow. It was a recurrance of melanoma.It can be dormant and stable like this for years we were told.
