I understand these are scan report findings. However you have not specified what your concerns are. Please post your questions and we can discuss about them.

Dr. Niranjan G MD

Dear sir , greetings from HCM , I hope its the the later stages ,, try palliative radiotherapy and hope for the best .. Thank you

Dr.  Prasad MD

Since I am not sure what your current symptoms are, I guess it would be use of antiinflammatory drugs and symptom control drugs. Option to operate to remove the diverticulum may need to be considered.
