I recently got my test results back, but was not able to get any feedback yet. I had periodontal disease and my CT scan showed maxillary and sphenoid sinusitis. Therefore, I went to an ENT specialist for imaging. My findings include mucosal thickening in the right sphenoid sinus, as well as mucus retention cyst or polyp in the left maxillary sinus. Mucus retention cyst or mucocele in the right inferior maxillary sinus causing the cortical scalloping with several foci of calcification within it. Additionally, the nasal septum is mildly deviated to the right. I have been trying to find information about cortical scalloping and calcification. To my understanding, is the sphenoid sinus issue somewhat rare? I would just like to know if this is something that probably is nothing much to worry about in or if it may seem to be more serious. What does cortical scalloping indicate? I understand that I will need to speak directly to my ENT doctor again. I also have migraines and on regular medicine. Thank you for your time and assistance.
