My recent ct scan revel that : at the lung bases,there is a tiny granuloma at the right lower lobe anterolaterally. No other anomalities are observed. Can this be the cause of future cancer?
No. Small granulomas are nearly universal in the lungs of Ohio residents and the sequelae of remote infection with Histoplasmosis.
