A 60-year-old male asked:

My mri report says notes "new near complete opacification of the left frontal sinus"----could this be from cancer tumor? i don't have any apparently noticeable symptoms-- what would you suggest that i do to follow up?

Radiology report: I saw your earlier post about this issue. It is really important to discuss specific medical questions you have about your test results with the medical provider who ordered them. Going to volunteer providers who don't know you or your full medical history to further interpret tests isn't the best way to go.

See below: All imaging results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, you and your doctor should talk to the radiologist who read the MRI. Wish you good health!
