CT - "Adxenal mass" "Calcifications in the pelvis may indicate vascular phleboliths". What test can confirm this? Is an adxenal mass the same as cyst?

CT - "Adxenal mass" "Calcifications in the pelvis may indicate vascular phleboliths". What test can confirm this? Is an adxenal mass the same as cyst?

Yes,: an ovarian cyst is in the category of adnexal masses, but so are other ovarian and paraovarian masses . Generally the next step in the evaluation would be pelvic ultrasound to characterize it as a cyst or not. Phleboliths are common incidental findings and usually of no clinical concern. ...Read more

Please tell me what does "calcified phleboliths are present in the lower pelvis bilaterally" mean?

Small calcified vein: These can be seen on a cat scan (sometimes a plain x-ray). They are small veins, sometimes that get benign clots that become calcified. Not much of a worry. ...Read more

Multiple calcified densities at pelvis could represent phleboliths versus distal uretral lithiasis?

Multiple calcified densities at pelvis could represent phleboliths versus distal uretral lithiasis?

Symptoms?: I guess you are reading the report of an abdominal x ray. Phleboliths are benign and are no cause for concern. They are not easily confused with ureteral stones especially when multiple. Stones would cause fever, pain, blood in urine. ...Read more

Would calcified phlebolith in lower right pelvis be the cause of ongoing lower back pain that has no other explained reason after a year if searching for answers?

Have calcified vein in pelvis.Radiologist report says unidentified ideology.( Also have kidney stones) Isn't that a phlebolith? Why then have a CT ?

Have calcified vein in pelvis.Radiologist report says unidentified ideology.( Also have kidney stones) Isn't that a phlebolith? Why then have a CT ?

Not sure.: Sometimes a phlebolith can't be differentiated from a distal ureter stone on xray, and a CT is done to make the distinction. Perhaps the calcified vein is a larger vein than the small veins associated with phleboliths, and further evaluation is needed. But I can't be sure based on limited info. Try discussing the need for a ct with your doc. ...Read more

Xray result saying that I have a 2mm calcification  (soft tissue swelling) overlying the dorsum of my left foot possibly represent phlebolith. Meaning?

Phlebolith: is a tiny bruise or bleeding spot that has healed and over time became hard as a rock ("litho"). It is mineralized and most often contains traces of calcium, magnesium and other minerals. These phleboliths most often will not change or go away, and remains as a small nuisance. If it causes problems, then see a foot surgeon. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more
