Calcium Deposits On Ovaries
What causes calcium deposits in or on the ovaries? My obgyn mentioned it today during my exam and I just want some more information. Thanks.
Old infection?: This can happen after an infection. Most commonly, histoplasmosis, which can be asymptomatic. The calcifications occur after infection is gone. Old tuberculosis can have calcifications as well. The lining of the lung (pleura) can also have calcifications (plaques) from asbestos exposure.See 1 more doctor answer
Cyst: Could be a cyst. Surgical excision is the approach.
Most likely injury o: Inflammatory disease in the area.Get a more detailed answer ›
Find the cause.: If these deposits are painful, they must have been there awhile. Your first priority should be to find out why they are present in the first place. A significant underlying disease, such as scleroderma, could be causing them. Once you find the cause, you can then talk about your treatment options.See 1 more doctor answer
Uncommon: One must distinguish calcium deposits in the liver (not common) from deposits in the blood vessels going into the liver (rare), or calcium in the gallbladder (common). Depending on the clinical scenario, deposits in the liver can occur in certain infections and tumors. Diabetes and kidney failure are risks for calcium in the vessels, while gallstones often contain calcium.
Can calcium deposits form in the tongue? My friend has little hard rocks coming out of the side and tip of the tongue.
??, calculus?: I have never seen or heard of calcium deposits forming in the tongue. Two thoughts come to mind. The less likely one is small calculi coming from the ducts of the submandibular salivary gland. The more likely scenario is pieces of calculus dislodging from the teeth. Have your friend see a dentist to find out which one it is.See 1 more doctor answer
Sometimes the level: Of calcium in the urine or blood is so high that it precipitates and forms deposits in the kidney called nephrocalcinosis. The is related to, but not the same as kidney stones. It can be caused by several genetic syndromes, hyperparathyroidism and vitamin D toxicity, certain meds, TB, renal tubular acidosis, etc. It is usually managed by treated the underlying condition. Good wishes:)
WHERE?: Need a little more info, be more specific.
Several things: Ulcers, necrosis or death of ski cells and infections.
Is the medicine Neosporin safe to use on calcium deposits? We used it recently on same "wound" and it seemed to help release the deposit. Now it is a
Calcium deposit???: On wound? I'm afraid I don't know what you mean by this. Neosporin is an antibiotic that can help prevent infection in wounds, but I don't think that it has any effect on calcium, and I can't think what is meant by calcium deposit on wound? Did you perhaps mean a "scab" (which is not calcium, but coagulated serum and dead cells)? That is a good biologic dressing and should not be removed.
ON Drusen: Optic nerve head drusens are common and cause some visual field defect in some, but more often than not, it is benign. Not much one can do anyway. Follow our ophthalmologist recommendation as they have more details.
Optic nerve: It depends on where the calcium deposits are located. If they are in the optic disk, then the calcium deposits are likely due to optic disk drusen, which are by-products of metabolism and there is nothing you need do about them as there is only a small likelihood they would cause any vision problem.
Read the instruction: Hard water deposits will accumulate in humidifiers that use heat to create the humidity. The manufacturer's directions should recommend a household mixture or a product you can purchase to attempt to remove the deposits. Only use what the manufacturer recommends, or you may damage the humidifier.
Endocrinologist: The question is why? We all have calcium deposited in our bones. That is normal. Otherwise, it must be addressed.
