Bladder (Definition)

The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding.

The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more

Did K.U.B US and prostat-ocystitis was the findings. Bladder wall thickness, coarse echo pattern prostate and small calcification. It s it curable?

Mom has a myoma 208 160 112 mm in size, and it is partially calcified. It is pressing on her bladder. Should she get surgery or should she keep it and?

Mom has a myoma 208 160 112 mm in size, and it is partially calcified. It is pressing on her bladder. Should she get surgery or should she keep it and?

If she does not make it clear that it is impacting her health the insurance company will deny payment. Isn't that special? As we give more power to the insurance companies (aca) beware what they require. ...Read more

Tiny calcific density in the right upper lungfield and faint linear density in the right midlung area. Probably of no present clinical significance.?

Calcium in lung: How was it diagnosed, by CXR, or by CT-MRI. Presence of CA, is always abnormal.
Because of the numerous structures in the upper chest, x-rays may show several shadows in normally clear areas. Reasons can range from the benign (rib shadows, anatomic anomalies), to more serious, including active infections (pneumonia, TB), old scars (healed TB), malignancies, and other diseases. Either way, suspicious densities should prompt your physician to pursue additional tests, which may include additional x-rays or CT scan. ...Read more
