I just had an x-ray exam, says granuloma, please advise?

Hi! I just had an x-ray exam and it says ‘additional oblique view of the right lung again shows the density in the right upper lobe likely a granuloma while the previously noted density in the right lower lung is no longer appreciated’ what does it mean?

  1. Hi..
    Thanks for the query..

    Lung granulomas can be due to infectious or non infectious causes..
    So first of all I would like to know what was the reason for getting x rays done?
    -Are there any symptoms?
    -Are you taking any medication for the same?

    Please revert back with answers..


  2. Hi..
    If any Infection is suspected a blood test and further tests like Biopsy can be done for further diagnosis..

    Hope this helps..
