Pelvic Calcifications Phleboliths
Please explain what it means to have your pelvis with calcification which is consistent with phleboliths?
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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Multiple calcified densities at pelvis could represent phleboliths versus distal uretral lithiasis?
Treatment for multiple calcified densities at pelvis could represent phleboliths versus distal uretral lithiasis?
Treatment different: Phleboliths are calcified small veins that are not usually clinically important. There usually is no treatment unless associated with hemangiomas, usually in children. Calculus or stone in ureter is referred to ureterolithiasis. This can cause pain and obstruction to the ureter. The stone either passes on its own, or sometimes has instrumentation by urologist. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Have calcified vein in pelvis.Radiologist report says unidentified ideology.( Also have kidney stones) Isn't that a phlebolith? Why then have a CT ?

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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
What causes Phlebolith Calcification? I was in a car accident 2 years ago with abdominal trauma caused by my safety belt. Could that be the cause?
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.
