Alternative Treatments For Calcified Granuloma
CT scan says "Liver is normal in size, shape & attenuation. " Focal calcification in the liver dome (2, 14)represent calcified granuloma. Do I need worry?
Ct: A calcified liver granuloma is of no clinical significance meaning no need to worry.
Old inflammation.: A granuloma is a type of inflammation. Granulomas can arise in response to some infections and to other inflammatory processes. This process is generally not associated with malignancy. When described as 'calcified', (like in an xray or ct scan), the reader of the study is generally indicated that the process is mineralized and is usually of long standing.
No: Calcified granulomas, especially the ones in the lungs, should not be removed - this would be an incredibly invasive procedure with risks that far outweigh benefits.See 1 more doctor answer
Where is it?: It depends upon where the granuloma is. A common place is in the lung. If that is where you having a granuloma then usually those are not removed. Once they calcify they usually do not cause a problem. If there is any concern that it may be infectious, they yes the doctors my try to remove it. Tell is more about this granuloma and we can give you a better answer.
Exposures: Over the course of ones life, we can be exposed to many things that will cause our body to react to them and form a type of scar. A granuloma is the remnant of the bodies reaction to something and is not worrisome.
Immune response.: A calcified granuloma is a type of inflammation. Some lung infections (like fungal infections) will trigger a response in the body in which the person's immune system surrounds the invading organisms with specific cells that form discrete clusters in attempt to wall the organism off from the host tissue. Over time, these can calcify. Non-infectious foreign material can also cause granulomas.
In a recent chest xray report says "Stable small calcified granuloma left apex. What does this mean?
I have a large calcified granuloma in my lung found in 2004. Did X-ray today & dr thinks it's growing& causing issues can it?
Is this alarming X-ray Impression No acute focal lung infiltrate Stable appearing tiny ovoid hyperdensity which may relate to calcified granuloma?
Stable is good.: Technically it would be good for me to know when the last xray was (the one to which they're comparing the current one). Bad things will pretty universally grow over time, so if this hypersensitive has not grown in months, or years, then it's very likely benign.
Typo: This is probably a secretarial error for "calcified granuloma with focal caseation".
Is this an invite?: Sorry, I don't operate anymore. But does your granuloma represent a space-occupying lesion, compressing healthy brain? Is it a developmental "anomaly" or malformation, dysfunctional but not harmful? Is it an active infection or neoplasm? Left temporal lobe surgery risks severe speech disruption. Brain mapping can determine your speech center pre-op. Do you need the surgery? Not enough info.
My catscan showed I have a fatty hepatic CT density changes & also says something about splenic calcified granuloma. What does this mean?
See answer: Low density fatty liver is common and often asymptomatic. It may be metabolic or related to medications. Talk to your dr and likely correlate with liver function tests to be certain. Calcified splenic granulomas are also common, asymptomatic and indicate exposure /prior infection.See 1 more doctor answer
My wife had a calcified granuloma in leftparieto occipital sulcus along with minimal perilesional gliosis. And she is getting seizures for this proble?
Probably: Many types of brain lesions, such as a calcified granuloma, brain tumor, or vascular malformation, can cause seizures. This happens when the lesion causes irritation to the surrounding brain tissue, which can cause electrical activity that can build into a seizure. Antiseizure medications are helpful in most cases, but if they are not, surgery may be indicated.
NO: They're present in practically all adults - it's part of breathing the air for 52 years.
What is a dense 8mm left lower nodule of the lung? Dense nodular opacity in the left lower lobe is likely a calcified granuloma. What does that mean to me?
It means: This is likely a benign incidental finding of no concern, a small calcified remnant of a remote inflammatory process.See 2 more doctor answers
My brother 16 yrs old, male) has got calcified granuloma (calcified nodule of 5mm) in his right frontal supratentorial which was diagnosed by CT scan?
I had some chest discomfort & chest xray. A calcified granuloma was noted not seen on chest CT in June. What could be the cause of sudden appearance?
Was it really: Not on the CT or just not reported? As an incidental finding, the reader could have chosen not to mention it. Have the doc go back and review the CT to see if it was there or not.
My brother (16 yrs old, male) has got calcified granuloma (calcified nodule of 5mm) in his left parietal cortex region which was diagnosed by CT scan?
See below: Symptoms and concerns like these mandate a thorough evaluation by his doctor. Only after such an evaluation, which may include labs and radiographic examinations, can he/she let you know what's going on and how best to help him.
