Small calcific density is noted at the base of palm, likely ossification. What does this mean ?

PA, oblique, and lateral views of the right hand are submitted
for interpretation. A small calcific density is noted at the
base of the palm which most likely represents ossification. No definitive fracture is identified. The osseous structures are
well mineralized. Mild degenerative changes are noted in the triscaphe and carpometacarpal joint of the thumb. No significant soft tissue swelling is appreciated. What does this mean?

Thanks for choosing HCM
Bone forming always occurs in controlled fashion some times bone formation is more in some people which can appear ossified densities. It is just a variation not an issue of concern. You have not mentioned how old are you. If there are no symptoms then this report is entirely normal.
Hope this helps you
Take care
