Im 53 yrs.Old, and impression in my ultrasound states that I have atypical renal csyt, right..Should i worry?

What is "atypical?": Single cysts in the kidney are not uncommon. My guess is that there was something different seen on the ultrasound or ct scan. If it were my kidney, i'd want to know what this is. Talk with your doctor about what is needed to make a firm diagnosis here. This may require re-scanning - or even a kidney biopsy. Good luck.

Sonogram (Definition)

An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

I have hepitis c and had a abnormal ultrasound come back, can you explain something about that ?

Liver problems: Hepatitis c can cause a chronic viral inflammation of the liver (hepatitis). Eventually, you can develop cirrhosis of the liver which is a kind of scarring which results in worsening liver function. Such patients are at an increased risk of developing hepatocellular carcinoma. You probably will be getting a needle biopsy of the liver and referral to a gastro-enterologist. Avoid alcohol & tylenol (acetaminophen). ...Read more

I had both the same day, and the mammogram come back normal, but the ultrasound came back abnormal? Which one is more accurate?

I had both the same day, and the mammogram come back normal,  but the ultrasound came back abnormal? Which one is more accurate?

Different: Mammogram and ultrasound look at different qualities. Mammogram is good at seeing tissue that is more dense than surrounding tissue and for calcifications. Ultrasound is good at seeing the whether those tissues are solid or fluid-filled or both. The two together, in addition to the physician's exam, help to create a more complete picture. Trust in your doctor to interpret these findings for you. ...Read more

Can an ultrasound have conclusive findings about the embryo at 6 weeks? Is it possible to tell an embryo is abnormal so early?

Can an ultrasound have conclusive findings about the embryo at 6 weeks?  Is it possible to tell an embryo is abnormal so early?

Sometimes, depends: If dates are very reliably know, US at 6 weeks can sometimes confirm that a pregnancy is abnormal. If dates are not certain the ultrasound becomes less conclusive. US can never guarantee 100% that a pregnancy at any stage is 100% normal. ...Read more

I had 4abortions. No comp. Asked my dr if I could have Asherman's synd. he says no becuz ultrasound doesn't show anything "abnormal" is he right?

I had 4abortions. No comp. Asked my dr if I could have Asherman's synd. he says no becuz ultrasound doesn't show anything "abnormal" is he right?

Not entirely: Asherman's is scarring within the endometrial cavity. This cannot be excluded with standard ultrasound because the cavity is not distended. Hysterosalpingography would be the gold standard, sonohysterography a close second. Unless you have recurrent pregnancy loss, I wouln't worry about it or do any further imaging. ...Read more

Have 6cm irregular ovarian adema cyst what does this mean. Going for another ultrasound 3 mths. Should I be concerned?J

Possibly: Many ovarian cysts can be benign and resolve spontaneously. At that size that is a small risk of torsion, where the cysts twists on itself, so hopefully it will resolve over that time period if not you might need surgery to resolve the cyst. ...Read more

I have an appt for ultrasound (transvirginal) for irregular bleeding. if I have bleeding on the day, should I reschedule or doesn't matter?

Won't matter: Don't reschedule! It will set you back days to weeks! The thingamajig - aka vaginal probe - is covered in sterile plastic. Plus, if you are actively bleeding, the timing is perfect & may help determine exactly what is causing the DUB. ...Read more
