Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
The findings you have mentioned are radiological findings which indicate an abnormal lining mucosa in the air spaces in the facial bones called the sinuses.
The finding indicates a chronic infection, allergic state leading to inflammation or a blocked outflow tract from the sinus.
You should consult an ENT surgeon of your locality because the condition needs close evaluation and at times needs surgical intervention.
I hope the advise would be helpful for you.
