How do I get rid of a granuloma on a nose piercing?


I got my nose pierced and a granuloma formed, and I have no idea how to get rid of it.
----------

You might have a condition called a "keloid". It is an exaggerated scar from skin piercing, seen often in patients of african descent, but can occur in any race. I suggest you refrain from body piercings and tattoos, and go to a dermatologist... Good luck!

What is my chance with calcified granuloma?


The heart doctor found calcified granuloma in my left lung at the base of it and in the lingula. What is it and is it harmful to me? I don't know what it is or where I got it.
Will it cause me to have trouble breathing and so forth?
----------

From all the reading and case histories I can find most of them are harmless. Make sure you continue to question your doctors in addition to any information found here.

"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.

The granuloma that forms as the result of these conditions is generally a calcified granuloma. 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."  (+ info)

How will they remove a pyogenic granuloma??


I have a pyogenic granuloma on my leg. I just got a referral from my doctor today and will be going to the dermatologist sometime soon. He said that they will burn it off, but I am reading up on it and seeing many other ways to treat. I have a severe phobia of needles and the like, and I tend to have minor panic attacks before a shot or anything like that, and a low pain tolerance, and the entire thing is scaring me. What will they do and how much pain will I be in?
----------

Aka "proud flesh"

Depending on how big the lesion is and where it is, a variety of techniques could be used sucessfully. The dermatologist will know which one to use to achieve the best cosmetic look and to cause the least discomfort. Be sure to let the Dr. know about your fears. He/she can then be extra certain to make the whole thing as painless as possible.

I predict after this is all done, you will be asking, "Is that all there was to it?" Hardly worth worrying about now, right?
Good luck.  (+ info)
