Calcified Granuloma

06/11/2010

Question:

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?

Answer:

No. Small granulomas are nearly universal in the lungs of Ohio residents and the sequelae of remote infection with Histoplasmosis.
