You havent told us why she got the USG done in the first place, is she having any symptoms of hyperthyroidism? Chronic infection? It depends on the symptoms and how ill she is. Also please mention the size of the adenoma

1. A Parathyroid Adenoma is a benign tumor of one of the parathyroid glands which usually are four in number, but some persons may have more.

2. Common symptomatology is described as moans, groans , stones and bones. Many patients have no specific symptoms.

3. Even if she has no symptoms, get her blood investigations done including blood , urine and calcium and parathyroid hormone levels. Rule out Diabetes.

4. The calcification in the left submandibular gland may be a result of this Parathyroid Adenoma. Maybe a salivary stone.

5. Get a MIBI nuclear imaging scan done, Get an abdominal USG done.

6. Remember to rule out an MEN (Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia) Syndrome.

7. Diet should include more vitamin D, less Calcium and be mostly Vegetarian.
