Hi!
The carotid arteries and their branches are present in the neck (on left and right side). In your case the left carotid artery or its branch has deposits of plaques or clots called atherosclerosis. However, the deposits which cause narrowing of the lumen of the artery (stenosis), is less than 50% or less than 50% of the lumen is narrowed. This is managed through medication and surgical procedures such as stenting (common) and endarterectomy (less common). You would need to adopt healthy lifestyle changes. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
