No worries!: Radiologists sometimes use colorful semantics to describe your x-rays. Phleboliths are benign calcifications in your pelvic veins. Hypertrophy of the greater trochanter it is very common and some people form bone spurs more easily than others. It is nothing that would cause any functional or pathologic problems with your hip. There is nothing to worry about.
