Hello and thank you for posting your medical question on E health forum.

From the history provided it seems that you have hypercalcemia. The most common cause of hypercalcemia is idiopathic and the next most is due to parathyroid enlargement.

Additional information including a thyroid ultrasound and blood tests to detect levels of PTH hormone are very important for assessment of your condition.

In case of idiopathic hypercalcemia, it is usual for primary doctors to observe the condition for a few months and then decide on the course of action.

I hope this helps.
