Found small spec of blood in sperm. No discomfort in urination or ejaculation. Fyi possible hemorrhage in sperm tube getting ultra sound tomorrow.

Possible Infection?: It could be related to the hemorrhage, depending on its location. Usually, blood is from trauma to the penis or an infection in the prostate. If it is a single episode, it is usually not significant. If there are other symptoms or repeated episodes, then, you need to be checked for infections.

If you are having unprotected sex, you should be getting checked regularly for infections, anyway. ...Read more

If you have pancreatitis and doctors do an ultra sound will they only see the problem if experiencing pain at that exact moment?

If you have pancreatitis and doctors do an ultra sound will they only see the problem if experiencing pain at that exact moment?

It is good for Cysts: Ultrasound alone is not a great test for the abdomen. A ct scan is much better to evaluate the abdominal problems. But ultrasound is a good test to look for a cyst in any organ like pancreas or liver/ kidneys and elsewhere in the body. ...Read more

Yes: Your doctor ordered it for a reason. Just because the one cyst is gone, there may be more, and there may be other things that need a second look. Following a logical course (which this is) is in your best interest. ...Read more

I have had PID. Can an ultra sound test to see any scarring that could have occurred? Worried about infertility.

I have had PID. Can an ultra sound test to see any scarring that could have occurred? Worried about infertility.

PID and Infertility: Ultrasound cannot see scar tissue, or "adhesions". A hysterosalpingogram (HSG) is an X-ray procedure where dye is injected into the uterus through the cervix. It can identify scar tissue inside the uterine cavity and diagnose "blocked tubes", or "tubal occlusion". It can identify fibroids and polyps which can also contribute to problems with conceiving. Laparoscopy can identify pelvic adhesions. ...Read more

I went in for a 6 week ultra sound expecting to see my baby s heartbeat until this ultrasound we had only seen one sac that sac now showed a beautiful beating heart t 105 I was measuring 6 weeks 4 days however the tech also found another sac considerably

I went in for a 6 week ultra sound expecting to see my baby s heartbeat until this ultrasound we had only seen one sac that sac now showed a beautiful beating heart t 105 I was measuring 6 weeks 4 days however the tech also found another sac considerably

Early pregnancy: At 6 weeks pregnant ultrasound is still very limited. We should see a gestational sac and hopefully a fetal pole. This is right on the cusp of when we can see a heart beat. So, a heart beat of 105 is still reassuring. In the next few weeks, baby grows a lot! The next ultrasound (even at 8 weeks) will be even a better and a nice fast heart beat (120 - 180) if all is progressing normally. ...Read more

Had DES in mid LAD february 2013. Is there a test like ultra sound to see if there is restenoses? Or something were the arteries can be seen?

Had DES in mid LAD february 2013. Is there a test like ultra sound to see if there is restenoses? Or something were the arteries can be seen?

Depends: I assume you are asking is there a non-invasive test to check for restenosis. The non-invasive test to check for restenosis would be either an exercixe or nuclear stress test. An invasive test requiring a cardiac catheterization can use an ivus (intravascular ultrasound) to examine the stent by ultrasound. Paying attention to symptoms that occur can also give indication of restenosis. ...Read more

Difficult to: Speculate, it may or may not involve the area previously biopsied. If you are very worried, call your doctor and ask what he/she is concerned about. Otherwise you will get an answer at your appointment. Most of the time these recalls turn out to be nothing of concern. ...Read more

Hello I had spotting for a week after I found out I was preg had ultra sound nothing to early to see had bloods hcg only rose from 661 to 753 progesterone level 10 could it be a miscarriage doctor said suspected on the phone have more tests tomorrow thank

Hello I had spotting for a week after I found out I was preg had ultra sound nothing to early to see had bloods hcg only rose from 661 to 753 progesterone level 10 could it be a miscarriage doctor said suspected on the phone have more tests tomorrow thank

Yes: Beta-HCG levels are expected to double every 48-hours in early pregnancy. Failure to double especially in the context of vaginal bleeding suggests a nonviable pregnancy which is most often from a miscarriage. These are more common than anyone realizes; in fact half of all pregnancies miscarry and are often never even detected. Don't distress, but do continue with your scheduled follow-up tests. ...Read more
