Remove spur

The calcium deposits are bone spurs. You may need to remove them if they are prominent and hurting. Try physical therapy to calm it down first.

I have several lumps (and keep noticing more) on my abs, legs and arms. I've also worked out a lot in my life. What could they be? Calcium deposits?

Need more info

Depends on the lumps and how they feel on exam, as well as your history. With this information there simply is not enough to guide you. You should consider seeing a physician for full evaluation - both history and physical.

My CT Angio done on 11.09.2013, shows calcium deposits in arteries & other blockages. They want to drill hole in calcium deposit to place stents. I want to know if drilling hole in calcium is safe.

Have your cardiology

Artery
done a nuclear stress test or cardiac catheterization? Do you have any Chest pain or symptoms of angina? Don't understand the drilling hole but I think you are talking about a percutaneous coronay intervention follow by stent placement. High calcium deposit make PCI sometimes difficult. Are you talking about open heart surgery?

How can I get rid of calcium deposits under the skin?

Find the cause.

Blood
One calcium deposit is pretty common - but multiple? The real question is, what are these deposits doing there? Either existing skin structures have calcified, or there is an excess of calcium in your blood that is depositing in the skin. Either way, you need to find the cause. This could be a significant problem; see your doctor and get to the bottom of it.
