Minor Musocal thickening within the left frontal sinus, the ethmoid air cells and right maxillary atrium found in MRI scan, have bad frontal headaches?
Mucosal thickening: What you are describing is completely normal with incidental finding of mucosal thickening on MRI. It is very common to see mild sinus mucosal thickening on MRI.
