Mary Jane Minkin, MD responded:
Dear Maddatmeno,
Calcium deposits can occur just about anywhere in the body. The lower uterine segment is the bottom part of the uterus, near the cervix. There may be a small fibroid there; calcium deposits in fibroids are very common.
It is almost never anything to worry about,
Mary Jane
