Symptoms Of Lung Granuloma
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. ...Read more
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more

What does it mean to have a calcified granulomas lung disease? Is this something serious? Is it treatable?
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
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. ...Read more
3 ACE tests 1st was 98, 2nd 111, 3rd 98. Never put on medicine. Granuloma in right lung calcified. Can ACE levels rise & fall w/o med? Sarc chances?
ACE test: Is not helpful in diagnosing sarcoid. The test is neither sensitive for, nor specific to sarcoid. If calcified, its probably not sarcoid, but rather a leftover scar from many years ago and nothing to fret over. Tell your doctor no more "ace tests" unless they can tell you what they will do with abnormal results. Even if you have sarcoid, ace can't tell us whether to treat it. Most don't need rx. ...Read more
