Brief Answer: Long standing scar tissue lead on to calcification Detailed Answer: Hello, Long standing scar tissue or increased serum calcium levels are the main reason for calcification. I would order serum calcium and cholesterol levels as the first set of investigations to isolate the cause. Your local physician will know about these tests. Follow up as per the results. Thank you.
