Some times calcified granulomas are also seen in post tubercular resolved state of the past in which the TB may or may not have been diagnosed or you never had any specific symptoms of TB and it got resolved on its own. Get a TB immunological test done by Serum(blood sample extract) TB IgG and IgM.
