A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more
How can I stop my hips from clicking and being uncomfortable. I have had X-ray it came back as normal?
See your doctor: An x-ray does not exclude several causes of clicking hip pain such as early arthritis, tears of the labrum, and inflammation of the lining of the joint. Inflammation of tendons near the hip can produce a "snapping" sensation with certain motions. If your doctor feels that further testing is needed and MRI of the hip or an mr arthrogram are more sensitive and may be helpful. ...Read more
I have cont. Discomfort on left hip upper back.? Feels like trapped air. Had an x-ray. Nothing seen. Injured that hip lifting heavy thing 10yrs back.
L got an xray done a while back. It showed gark and light clump like foggy thing on left side next to spine/above hip. What is the foggy like stuff be?
It is impossible: To venture a guess...everything is a combination of black/white/gray on an x-ray. It might be bowel contents, but without being able to view the x-ray, and with a non specific lay description, there is really no way to tell. Talk to your doc about the results, or if you want to initiate a HelathTap consult and upload the image I would be happy to review it. ...Read more

Pinched Nerve: Sounds like you have a pinched nerve in your back. I would suggest seeing a pain/spine specialist to evaluate you further to evaluate what level and what can be done to treat you.

Had X-ray of low lumbar and hips. Finding says degeneration in certain discs and 'abnormalities' in hips but doc says nothing serious? Difference?
Probably OK...: It is difficult to say with 100% certainty because I do not know what the 'abnomalities' are. However, it is not uncommon for the radiologist to report mild degenerative changes or other anatomical variants that are common for the sake of completeness in the radiological report. Most referring physicians extract the relevant clinical information for you, but it can't hurt to ask for clarification. ...Read more

Second or third op: Synovial fluid removal from a hip is rare. If there is re- accumulation you need to get a second or third opinion. It may be time to get a hip replacement. If you get an infection it could be quite serious. It could prevent an actual hip replacement. NO more aspiration. ...Read more

Shoulder pain, neck, back pain, hip pain. Xray normal except mild wedging t7, t8. A couple schmorl's nodes. Would trauma be clearly seen?
Maybe.: X-rays have miss rates where the finding isn't detected or can't be seen. X-rays are not very sensitive for soft tissue injuries such as ligaments or discs. MRI is more sensitive for soft tissue injury and may show marrow or structure changes from fractures. CT or nuclear medicine bone scan may show missed fractures, not seen or visible on x-ray. X-ray remains a good screening tool. ...Read more

Just found out I have a 3.6 cm cyst on right ovary. Having hip pain, back pain, nausea, constipation, I look about 7 months pregnant but have lost 5 l?
3.6 cm = about 1.5in: Hi, ur cyst sounds like it is small. You advise that it is 3.6 cm which is less than 1 & 1/2 inches. This would not make you look "7 mo pregnant". When there is an ovarian cyst, you and your doc must consider the following: is it simple or complex? Is there any solid component? Ur age and menopause status. For the cyst a minimum eval is a follow up US (6 wks). For the rest, u need more evaluat ...Read more

I am experiencing pain on my right hip bone. I had pelvic xray and the result says It's exaggerated lumbar lordosis. What do I need to do?
Exag Lumbar Lordosis: Your spine has an increased curve to it (different from scoliosis) when you look at a "side profile" of your spine. Sometimes this increased curve can cause imbalance between your back, hips, and buttocks. Could benefit from course of PT or chiropractic to see if some of that lumbar lordosis will resolve with postural training, etc. This could help your hip pain. ...Read more
