Calcuim Pockets In the Brain ??

My 9 yr old son recently had a catscan done because of constant headaches. The results found excess calcium build up in the brain , like a calcium pocket. He now has a mri scheduled soon for a further glance. Has anyone had this? Or know anything about it? What it might be? Or what needs to be done? Thanks. Wink

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These are calcifications. It could be due to excess calcium like in hyperparathyroidism
or hyperthyroidism. Sometimes cysts get calcified.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
