Why do i have calcified granuloma on my liver?

Exposures

Scars
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.

How can calcified granuloma occur in our lungs?

Immune response.

Chest-lung
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.

Dr. Tony T. Ho answered:

It's calcified granuloma can remove? and back to normal?

No

Chest-lung
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.

Hi doctors, was just wondering what is calcified granuloma of the lungs?

Old inflammation.

Lung
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.

can you operate and remove calcified granuloma in brain left temporal lobe size about 7.5mm?

Is this an invite?

Head-brain
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.

How does a radiologist ddx a calcified granuloma vs. a rectal adenocarcinoma lung metastasis?

Experience

Lungs
A calcified granuloma is...Calcified! Most metastatic nodules are not. Exceptions include mets from osteosarcoma, and mucinous adenocarcinoma of the colon. Granulomas tend not to change over time. Mets tend to grow and are usually multiple.

My catscan showed I have a fatty hepatic ct density changes & also says something about splenic calcified granuloma. What does this mean?

See answer

Computed_tomography
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.
