Dear Patricia

A granuloma refers to a spesific type of growth pattern of tissue, an can be confirmed on histology. It is an umbrella term for tissue that tends to be fast growing and very vascular, and may be associated with certain infective conditions.
The only way to really know this is to have the tissue examined by a pathologist. They can give an accurate diagnosis. If the pathology report excludes a malignancy, it is not present in the specimen they have examined.
Granulomas are generally not malignant, but I would suggest histology to exclude a malignancy.
