I have a 2.4 heterogeneous hypoechoic solid nodule with cystic components and no increased vascularity or interna calcification. Shortness of breath?

I have a 2.4 heterogeneous hypoechoic solid nodule with cystic components and no increased vascularity or interna calcification. Shortness of breath?

Not sure: I'm not exactly sure what the question is but I don't like the sound of the mass you describe. It sounds as if this was a breat ultrasound finding. Is that true? If so, what was the physicians recommendation? If my assumptions are correct, there is no definite clear relationship to shortness of breath from a physiologic standpoint, but shortness of breath should to be evaluated. ...Read more

Us shows large complex cystic right thyroid lesion. 2.8x1.9x1.8cm with layering debris, left lobe heterogeneous. What's the next step?

Thyroid biopsy: Most nodules of the thyroid are benign. However, one should consider biopsy of any nodule that is larger than 1 cm in size. Even though your nodule may be mostly fluid (cystic) containing, it would be advised to do a fine needle biopsy. This is a simple outpatient procedure. ...Read more

What is a innocuous and isoechoic thyroid nodule. Also what is a heterogenous nodule with tiny cystic spaces, it measures 0.7cm?

What is a innocuous and isoechoic thyroid nodule. Also what is a heterogenous nodule with tiny cystic spaces, it measures 0.7cm?

Hard to say: It's hard to say without seeing the actual images. An isoechoic nodule is typically nonspecific and potentially falls in the indeterminate range (ie need follow up or biopsy). Same thing for a heterogenous "nodule" with tiny cystic spaces. A "complex cyst" with tiny cystic spaces can be a sponge like cyst that is typically benign. ...Read more

Possible biopsy: Many people have thyroid issues and have ultrasounds that can show a multitude of issues. Most findings are benign and typically are cysts. Biopsies are done routinely for solid nodules to make sure they are benign or not. You may require some thyroid replacement but thyroid blood tests are also required. She your primary or an endocrinologist since they specialize in thyroid issues. Good luck ...Read more

Is a heterogeneous breast mass with posterior attenuation suspicious of malignancy? I have very cystic breasts so US was not that clear.

Is a heterogeneous breast mass with posterior attenuation suspicious of malignancy? I have very cystic breasts so US was not that clear.

Generally,: The ultrasound descriptors you mention imply a more suspicious nature. However, all of the imaging and clinical features must be taken into account. Also, keep in mind that "suspicious" in breast imaging implies a chance of malignancy between 2%-95%, which is a huge range, and in fact 75% or so biopsies of suspicious masses turn out benign. ...Read more

R/o uterine neoplasi: If you have had bleeding for 2 weeks, have suspicious findinfs on us it would be best to establish what is actually going on> Labs such as fsh lh, progesterone, estradiol should all be checked but the gold standard would be a D&C to rule out any immediate and possibly dangerous pathology ...Read more

I hv few cystic lesions in both the ovaries, wht is it, can it be cured on reducing weight I am 5'2" and 62kg age 25? Can I conceve? Or go under medicin

Probably polycystic: T sounds like you might have polycystic ovarian disease. Pcos as it is now called is common with probably 5% of the world or more suffering from some variant of it. It is not a serious problem, but can lead to increased weight, hair growth and irregular periods. Weight loss will not cure the problem. Pregnancy is harder to achieve, but Clomid (clomiphene) or other medications may help if not by natural means. ...Read more

I tried anabolicsteroids briefly 3 yrs ago. Just developed a aching lump with cystic/solid components from ultsnd at injection site. What Could it be?

Scar tissue: Repeated injury can cause inflammation, infection, abscess & scar tissue formation. It's a bad idea to inject prescribed medication (example: insulin) repeatedly at the same site. It's a bad idea to use anabolic steroids without medical indication or supervision. You're fortunate that scar tissue is the only complication you suffered & wise to have discontinued this practice. ...Read more

I just ordered the acne face wash pronexin but am afraind it will not be strong enouhg for the cystic type lesions I get. Can I adda topical anti-bi?

Need Rx: Cystic lesions require a physician's supervision (a systemic antibiotic, probably with a combined topical therapy) and generally if they are deep, a dermatologist's (isotretinoin, lasers, more). This is the 21st century and there is no reason that even cystic acne cannot be managed. ...Read more
