Hi,

These findings are almost always benign and must be correlated to clinical symptoms.

The arachnoid cyst has likely been present since birth and is filled with water as opposed to pus or being a tumor.

Again, depending upon the rest of your symptoms and WHY you got the scan in the first place I would send you for an MRI of the brain with Gadolinium contrast in order to better characterize the calcified granuloma and order blood work.

A chest X-ray and placing a PPD test on your arm to screen for tuberculosis would also be good things to get in this setting.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dariush Saghafi, Neurologist
