Calcification in the Throat

02/21/2002

Question:

I was told I have calcification in my throat when I had an X-Ray. What could be the cause(s) of this?

Answer:

You need to speak with your doctor about this. Calcification occurs normally in bones. Bones are near the throat and it could just have been an area that was very calcified. On the other hand calcifications can occur in soft tissues. It depends which tissue is calcified as to whether it is of concern or not. That is why you need to speak to your doctor to find out what is calcified if anything.
