Could you explain what is calcified meningioma of the brain?

Meningioma

Head-brain
A meningioma is a tumor that arises from the membrane that covers the brain. They are most commonly benign and treatment is based on on location and rate of growth. In seeing "calcified" or calcifications this usually means the lesion is benign and likely not treated. Rapid growth or compression of the surrounding brain will accerlate the decision for treatment.

Anyone know what is a hyperostosis versus a small calcified meningioma mean?

Radiographic lingo

Meningioma
Hyperostosis refers to a proliferation of the skull focally. Sometimes it is difficult to differentiate between hyperostosis and a calcified meningioma which is a brain tumor that is close to the skull. It is also important to keep in mind that a meningioma( which is usually a benign tumor) itself can irritate the adjacent skull and lead to hyperostosis.
