Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Incidental findings in CT scan is often common and benign.
The shadow can be a benign cyst commonly if the size is small less than 3 cm.
Also black shadow means it is less dense and that is also consistent benign cause.
Smooth round shadow also suggests it benign.
