Pulmonologist 's  Response
A calcified granuloma in the brain may be due to an old tuberculous focus or a neurocysticercosis which is healed and calcified. Some times it may cause symptoms like seizures(Epileptic Fits) or headache or it may just lie there without causing any symptoms and discovered accidently during CT Scan for some other reason. If your uncle has no symptoms, just leave it alone. You may also consult a Neurologist.
