Hi whoami.

According to medical journals, A granuloma is a medical condition characterized by a noncancerous inflammation in the tissue. Typically, a granuloma encompasses only a small part of the tissue. For the most part, a person with a granuloma does not experience any signs or symptoms. In fact, most granulomas are found through an x-ray that is performed for unrelated reasons. When found during an x-ray examination, the granuloma is often mistaken for cancer.

The majority of granulomas are the result of an injury to the tissue, particularly as the result of infection. In some cases, a granuloma may occur in the lungs as well. In fact, the most common cause of granuloma is a fungal infection in the lungs, which is called histoplasmosis. Other conditions associated with a granuloma formation include berylliosis, syphilis, sarcoidosis, Crohn’s disease, tuberculosis, Churg-Strauss syndrome, and Wegener’s granulomatosis.


One form of granuloma is granuloma inguinale, which is a bacterial infection of the genital area. This form of granuloma is caused by a bacteria called Calymmatobacterium granulomatis and mostly affects individuals living in tropical and subtropical regions, such as Guyana, Southeast India, and New Guinea. In addition, this sexually transmitted form of granuloma affects men more often than women, particularly homosexual males. An individual with granuloma inguinale develops blisters or lumps in the genital region, which ultimately become open sores. It takes about 80 years after exposure for granuloma inguinale to develop into open sores.

=================================================
there is another term called "calcified granuloma" which means it is a granuloma containing calcium deposits. This type of granuloma contains deposits of calcium and usually takes time to develop. Therefore, most granulomas have been present in the body for a very long time before they are identified.  For example, a calcified granuloma in the lung may be due to tuberculosis contracted years earlier that is now dormant. there are actually a lot of reasons why this resurfaces just now but Since tumors can be one cause of nodules and granulomas they are generally checked periodically over time to be sure that they are staying the same.  When there is change the goal is to notice the change early so that further testing can be done.  Then treatment can be started as soon as possible when it will be most helpful.  So your doctors recommendation of another CT scan in 6 months is sound practice. I suggest i monitor mo itong condition mo... or better yet consult your physician with this case

in simple terms.. "granuloma" loosely to mean "a small nodule". Since a small nodule can represent anything from a harmless nevus to a malignant tumor, this usage of the term is not very specific. The correct use of the term "granuloma" requires a pathologist to examine surgically removed and specially colored (stained) tissue under a microscope. The following is a more technical definition of a granuloma.

@blessings.. depende po yun

granulomas are noncancerous (benign), they may resemble cancer on an X-ray if they aren't obviously calcified so better examine it first to your doctor or ipaevaluate mo sa physician mo... iba pa din syempre ang consultation sa doctor kasi mas maeexplain nila sayo ng mas maigi...
