Dear edmee
These are small calcification in veins of pelvis (probably caused by damage to these veins by increased pressure during coughing or costipation), common in old age and are usually harmless and of no consequence though some times phleboliths can be due to some other pelvic patholgy like diverticulosis. Phleboliths clinical inmportance is-  they can be confusd with stone in ureter.
