My mother had a headache a long time recently, we did a CT scan, and there is a report of mild diffuse sclerosis on skull vault and bilateral concha bullosa and osteoma and more diagnosis. Can you please explain to me is there any problems or not?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Headache does not seem to be related to any structural cause in the brain. The findings mean the following. Sclerosis of skull vault could be age related and benign. However, I need to check the serum ionized calcium level. Sclerosis could be a sign of something abnormal if the serum calcium is abnormal.
1. Osteoma is a benign bone tumor. Nothing to worry and nothing to do.
2. Concha bulls is normal anatomical variation.
3. Sclerosis of mastoid air cells could be normal or sequelae of infection. If you have an earache or ear discharge, please consult an ENT specialist.
Essentially, the scan is normal. The headache could be related to migraine or tension headache.
