What is a questionable punctate calcific density in the kidney, CT report says that. Also what is a 1.2 CM probable cyst in the lower pole of kidney?

Kidney abnormalities: "calcific densities" in the kidneys usually represent calcifications or stones, depending on any other associated findings they may have mentioned.

They could also grow to compress the cerebral aqueduct which could disrupt the normal flow of cerebrospinal fluid and cause build up of fluid in your brain. It could also compress the brain stem interfering with your visual gaze. ...Read more

What is atherosclerotic vascular calcification? I have a cyst behind my left knee that is 2c by 2c by 5c.

They often however cause no problem. They are usually identified on an ultrasound study. If you had worsening pain, redness, leg pain, or new symptoms then it would need to be immediately evaluated. ...Read more
