Punctate calcifications ??

Hello,

My dad's recent CT shows multiple punctate calcifications in liver (right lobe). All other parameters are fine.

The oncologist says it's nothing to be worried about but the point is that I'm really worried since my dad (76 y.o now) had a colon cancer 3 years ago, he underwent surgery, no methastasis and preventive chemo for 6 months- Since then he is under periodical controls, and fortunately everything has been fine so far.

I would greatly appreciate some help on the significance of punctate calcifications, any comments will be helpful-

Thanks in advance,

I have been diagnosed as having an enlarged prostate gland with a puncate calcification.  Does this positively mean I have cancer?
