Hello and thank you for your query!

The most important aspect is to know if it is a meningeal/dura mater calcification (which is a common finding in adults), or a true brain calcification (usually non-specific, some of them correspond to sequelae of parasitic infection, especially if multiple).
In both cases, there is usually no progression and, if the remaining brain is normal, they should not be a cause of worry.

I wish you Good Health!
