In brief: There are any of a

number of areas that could be calcified.
Some are of more clinical importance than others. Without a specific report from the ultrasound it is difficult to suggest whether this is concerning for you or not. This should be discussed with your doctor and you should express your specific concerns. If you don't get a reasonable answer or explanation then be more assertive about your concerns.
