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
I have constant upper left abdominal pain that affects my everyday quality of life. I have splenic granulomas how can I fix the pain?
May need surgery: If your splenic granulomas are causing the pain, and only you and your surgeon can decide if this is the case, surgery to remove the spleen could cure this pain. Please consult with your doctor!
Small granuloma in spleen, single 8mm uterine fibroid, leucocytes of 95 and erythrocytes of 74 in urine, pain on right side but no action taken. Worried?
Not sure: Well, I don't have all the info BUT I can tell you the 8mm (not cm, right?) fibroid is NOT worrisome, nor is the spleen granuloma. Both are old. Not sure if you have something brewing in the urine, but not sure. If you've been released, hydrate!!! you may be passing a tiny kidney stone too little for them to find. Then followup w ur doc if u are not getting better... good luck!

Recent CT of the abd. : "incidental" discovery of a large granulomata (spleen). I have had pain in the upper left abd. & swelling there also. Related?
No.: A granuloma is a benign calcification, and are very common in the spleen. It is from an old, healed infection. They cause no symptoms.
Small nodule: Doctors use the word "granuloma" in different ways. Pathologists may be the most precise in their use. It's basically a collection immune cells (macrophages) that are in a tight knit ball - could be either from an infection or not. There may be some necrosis in the granuloma.See 1 more doctor answer
Tissue overgrowth: A pyogenic granuloma occurs after an injury or trauma. This is part of the body's healing response. The granulation tissue grows quickly to cover the area of injury and will usually be covered by epithelial tissue (skin). Sometimes this balance is thrown off and the tissue grows to quickly or the skin grows to slowly. To treat this problem, the granuloma is removed and the skin is sutured closed.
Skin granulomas: Granuloma annulare is a condition where granulomas (little lumps of immune reactive tissue) form in the skin. It can occasionally be associated with thyroid disease or diabetes, so you should be worked up for those conditions by your doctor. Otherwise, it is benign and of only cosmetic concern. Treatment is usually with steroid injections into the granulomas, but other therapies are described.
Steroids etc.: Granuloma annulare is a condition where granulomas (little lumps of immune reactive tissue) form in the skin. Treatment is usually with steroid injections into the granulomas, but other therapies include ultraviolet light therapy, creams, and oral medications. Speak to your doctor because choice of treatment depends on what your condition looks like.See 2 more doctor answers
Removal with Biopsy: A pyogenic granuloma is non-cancerous growth of tissue that is composed of fragile immature blood vessels. There are often found in areas on the skin after trauma (fingers and toes around the nail are most common). They are tender and bleed very easily. See your doctor to have it removed and tested by biopsy to make sure that is what it is.
