Typically follow-up: The 2 mm granuloma is likely postinfectious in nature and benign. The 8mm slightly lobulated nodule will require a follow-up scan. The interval of the follow-up scan is determined by your risk category. Generally smokers or those with a history of cancer will be followed at a shorter interval. If the lesion does not change in size over the course of two years this is generally considered a benign lesion.

Granuloma of lung: A granuloma of the lung is the result of an inflammation of the lung. They may be due to infectious processes like TB or sarcoidosis. Fungi such as histoplasmosis or coccidimycosis or may be due to a cancerous tumor. You will need further studies such as a MRI or ct scan. A needle biopsy may also be needed to determine the cause. Good luck!
