No need: Such findings are seen frequently and have little relationship to symptoms.
Dr. Anthony Filly

Symptoms?: We see this frequently to certain degrees on many many scans in asymptomatic people. Since it sounds like you have a headache, it's worth treating, but may not help. This is not generally a sign of acute sinusitis.
