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

Colonoscopy, endoscopy, CT scan, pelvic ultrasound, fsh, ca125,estrogen all normal. I have severe pelvic,low back, rectal pain. Dr says IBS-c. AGREED?

All the bad stuff: is rather ruled out completely. Ovarian cancer would be totally ruled out (and would be classic for these symptoms) You are, too young for it, too. http://www.nerdpocalypse.net/diseases/irritable%20bowel.html Other associated symptoms. Pain, bloating, gas, rumbling stomach or pain association with defecation strongly suggest IBS. ...Read more

Does a pelvic transvaginal ultrasound hurt?

Does a pelvic transvaginal ultrasound hurt?

No: A transvaginal ultrasound is done by inserting an ultrasound probe into the vagina to better evaluate the pelvic organs. Lubrication is applied to the top of the probe to ease insertion. An ultrasound should not be painful. Some women describe a "pressure" sensation but pain should not be experienced. ...Read more

Level 3 cervical lymphnode had abnormal morphology on ct, getting an excision biopsy soon. What do abnormal morphology mean? Doc suspects lymphoma

Level 3 cervical lymphnode had abnormal morphology on ct, getting an excision biopsy soon. What do abnormal morphology mean? Doc suspects lymphoma

Shape/Size Mostly: CT shows nodal shape, size and if it is has fat (a good thing). Most nodes are oval or kidney shaped. If they are round and big, they may be involved in something like lymphoma. Sometimes infection can do this too, so it is not a slam dunk. I'm afraid you'll just have to wait it out for the path report as CT is non specific. MR with fancy contrast is better but still not as good as Bx. ...Read more

If you had pain during the pelvic exam you may need to discuss diagnostic laparoscopy; if not then maybe see a different specialist. ...Read more

I get severe pelvic/rectal/lower back pain after orgasm. GYN test show normal tvu, fsh, estrogen, metabolic panel, etc...what causes this. ?

?Endometriosis: Please see your OB/GYN or primary doctor and have a frank discussion with them about how often, when, what positions, etc. cause this severe pain. This is NOT normal, and can be a sign of more serious illness. Endometriosis (inner lining of the uterus escaped to OUTSIDE the uterus, but inside the belly) can sometimes cause scar tissue which is stretched with sex and orgasm. Get care!

Gyno says with no Chlam or Gon, normal US scan, normal repeated blood tests, normal urine sample that my pelvic and abdo pain isn't PID. True?

Gyno says with no Chlam or Gon, normal US scan, normal repeated blood tests, normal urine sample that my pelvic and abdo pain isn't PID. True?

PID: PID is mainly a clinical diagnosis: that means there is no "test" for PID, it is diagnosed based on features of physical exam, history, and augmented by lab tests. Cultures for chlamydia, gonorrhea, ultrasound, urine sample are not part of - or even necessary for - the diagnosis. A doctor who has not examined you cannot diagnose whether you had PID or not. Sorry, hope this helps. ...Read more

2 cysts found in breast w/previous cancer.Ultrasound said benign .Should I seek further testing or 2nd opinion?

2 cysts found in breast w/previous cancer.Ultrasound said benign .Should I seek further testing or 2nd opinion?

Talk to your doc: If they are well visualized simple cysts, the chance of malignancy is essentially zero. Asymptomatic simple cysts require no treatment. If they are "complex" cysts, meaning they have irregular or thick walls, septations, or other features making them suspicious, further evaluation may be necessary. So it depends what kind of cysts they are. If they were coded as "benign", they are prob simple ...Read more

A few things : Your doctor is checking your blood count and your platelets to make sure there are no signs of anemia or infection. Also checking your pituitary and your thyroid. An ultrasound is performed to look and see if there are additional cysts on the ovaries. A very thorough doctor. You should be pleased and I hope the test turn out negative for you ...Read more
