Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
The commonest cause of a calcified granuloma is an inactive parasitic lesion. Other causes may be infective granulomas. The chances of it being malignant are extremely less. The CT findings which you have described suggest anomalies of development of the kidney.
As I believe that more information can help a physician arrive at an accurate diagnosis, I would request
you to answer the following questions:

Did you have symptoms of giddiness or convulsions in the past?
Do you have any history of liver infections or febrile illnesses?
What symptoms prompted you to do a CT KUB.

Awaiting your reply.
I hope I have answered your query.
Regards
