Don't panic: 1) The scan is not the pt; you are. 2) Operative word here is "mild." Those findings may cause no symptoms at all. 3) In medicine and especially in this sort of situation, 1 picture = 1000 words. Your doc ordered the scan for a reason. Look at the images with your doc and have them interpret them for you, or find you someone who can. You have a right to an explanation in terms you understand.
