You are correct about the left parietal lobe functions. However you should not concern yourself yet. A calcified granuloma is usually a dead infection (usually tuberculosis or in some - neurocysticercosis), and unless there are other features on the CT scan to say that it is active--you should stay happy. It is unlikely to be the cause of your worries.
Good luck.

hello mr Udaykumar, wel come to HCM forum, With above information you looks very anxious depreesed regarding your CT scan report. It is not troublsome to mental health. May I suggest you to take protien suppliments, heavy antioxidant to relieve to oxidative pressure on your brain cells, suplliment of vit C and E. I think this advice will help you. thanx, have a good health.
