Granulomas and AutoImmune Disease

According to Princeton:

A granuloma is a tumor composed of granulation tissue resulting from injury or inflammation or infection. This tumor may form in many areas of the body and is usually benign. They are not usually removed.

If you have been told you have a granuloma, that means that you have a lump that has grown as a result of inflammation (usually chronic) somewhere in the body. If you continue to have inflammation new granulomas will continue to form. The root cause must be treated.

It is important to understand that inflammation is the body's way of dealing with infection, irritation, or other types of injuries. Inflammation is a recognized type of nonspecific immune response.

If you have problems with your immune system you should find a doctor who understands the treatment of auto immune diseases such as Lupus. This specialist is called a rheumatologist, the specialty is Rheumatology. Take a look at the following informative videos. Perhaps it is time to take a look at how our diet combined with toxins and chronic inflammation affects the way our body functions.
