In brief: Neither finding

Is cause for concern.
Mri is better at finding small cysts and benign hemangiomas than ct. Granulomas are also benign and usually result from prior exposure to histoplasmosis (very common).

In brief: Not concerning

Both imaging studies are probably describing the same thing.
Spleenic granulomas represent old infections.
