What does laryngeal cartilage calcification indicate?
Q: My x-ray report says laryngeal cartilage calcification is noted. What does it mean? The x-ray was done after I was diagnosed for hypothyroidism.
A:Laryngeal cartilage calcification is almost always a normal variant and rarely has any significance from a disease point of view. This has no connection with hypothyroidism and does not warrant further evaluation in this case.
