It basically means that the granuloma is an old one as it is calcified and since it is neutralized—it is dead or does not contain any infection. The granuloma can form due to any inflammation, parasites travelling in blood, bacterial infection including tuberculosis, viral infection, etc that get localized and calcified. Usually no treatment is required as usually they are small and do not cause any symptoms and may be a chance finding. However, bigger and symptomatic granulomas may need surgery. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care!
