For years I have known that I have had an 8mm calcium deposit on one lung. My last X-ray showed that my lungs are filled with calcium. I don't know what to do or if this can be treated. I have lupus and it is probably from chronic infections that I don't even know that I have. Can anything be done to correct this? What type of doctor should I see?

I went to the doctor with problems breathing, dizziness, light headness. After running tests to see if I have asthma, and if I'm anemic, I just found out today that my Xray showed how I have a calcium deposit on my lung, but it isn't big and nothing to worry about.

But I have never heard of this before, and I'm wondering if this will dissolve on its own, and if it can lead to other health problems.

Any advice given will be great!
