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

Treatment for 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 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?

No: No, those are generally not felt to cause symptoms at all. So if you are having pain, it is likely something else. Have you had an MRI? Consider a second opinion by a specialist if you are not getting the answers you need. ...Read more

I have kidney stones.in  a recent xray says: there aremultiple phleboliths in lower pelvis". Is this dangerous? the dr asked if  had pain.

Stones vs phlebolith: Kidney stones are not phleboliths and phleboliths are not kidney stones; phleboliths are calcification of pelvic blood vessels. Stones in ureter or kidney are very different. Stones cause pain; phleboliths do not cause pain typically. ...Read more

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

What does this mean? Hypertrophic changes of the right greater trochanter concerning for the right gluteal tendinopathy? Pelvic phleboliths?

No worries!: Radiologists sometimes use colorful semantics to describe your x-rays. Phleboliths are benign calcifications in your pelvic veins. Hypertrophy of the greater trochanter it is very common and some people form bone spurs more easily than others. It is nothing that would cause any functional or pathologic problems with your hip. There is nothing to worry about. ...Read more
