Atrophy (Definition)

Atrophy usually refers to the skin-as you get older or if you have had alot of sun in the past-the dermis (that is the layer below the top layer which is called the epidermis) gets thinner and the skin looks more wrinked. Muscles and fat can also get thinner -this is another form of atrophy. Even the top layer gets thinner ...Read more

Not cancer: Nothing in this dscription says 'cancer'. In fact, nothing in this description says it's other than just a palce where you scratched for a week or so because it itched. The key is the clinical correlation. ...Read more

WHAT DOES BENIGN ENDOMETRIUM WITH A PROLIFERATIVE PATTERN, GLANDULAR BREAKDOWN AND DIFFUSE STROMAL BREAKDOWN - SCANT BENIGN ENDOCERVICAL TISSUE MEAN?

WHAT DOES BENIGN ENDOMETRIUM WITH A PROLIFERATIVE PATTERN, GLANDULAR BREAKDOWN AND DIFFUSE STROMAL BREAKDOWN - SCANT BENIGN ENDOCERVICAL TISSUE MEAN?

No worries!: Benign is normal or "non-cancerous". Proliferative just means the cells are in the phase where they are dividing which is normal during the estrogen part of the cycle. Endocervical tissue is just cells that came from inside the cervix - these were also benign! All good news! ...Read more

Help me interpret vulvar biopsy. Focal squamous atypia. Ki-67 shows mild increase cell proliferation focal vin can't be excluded. Lichen sclerosis?

Help me interpret vulvar biopsy. Focal squamous atypia. Ki-67 shows mild increase cell proliferation focal vin can't be excluded. Lichen sclerosis?

Nothing serious yet: This report suggests slightly abnormal changes (atypia & increased cell proliferation) which can be a reaction to irritation but there is no definitive evidence of precancerous change (VIN). In short there is nothing to worry about right now unless you are concerned and you'd like a second opinion ...Read more

Esophageal mucosal fragments reveal moderate mixed inflammatory cell infiltrate compromising neutrophils, lymphocytes, foci of mild dysplasia. Bad?

Esophageal mucosal fragments reveal moderate mixed inflammatory cell infiltrate compromising neutrophils, lymphocytes,  foci of mild dysplasia. Bad?

Maybe: Please check your report and see if there is any mention of barrett's esophagus or intestinal metaplasia. These findings would indicate a premalignant component that requires regular, lifetime followup. The finding of mild dysplasia may require additional medicines for a while, but please followup with your gastroenterologist that did the biopsy. ...Read more

M77 , biopsy of vastus laterilus muscle says "secondary neurogenic atrophy with super imposed inflmatory myopathy" which disease this may be?thanks

M77 , biopsy of vastus laterilus muscle says "secondary neurogenic atrophy with super imposed inflmatory myopathy" which disease this may be?thanks

Your doctor needs: to findout if you have any cause for your neuropathy. This can be from many causes - usually diabetes or alcohol or other drugs are the cause. You need to go over with your doctor what possible things in your life are responsible for it. The secondary inflammation suggests you have a compromised immune system or slightly weakened one. People usually do not get inflammation of the muscle. ...Read more

Not yet.: While there is a lot of interest in using stem cells to regenerate injured brain, spinal cord, and eye disease, so far, these are all experimental and unproven. ...Read more

What does this mean? elongation of the papillae, basal cell hyperplasia, intracellular edema, and focal degranulation of eosinophils

What does this mean? elongation of the papillae, basal cell hyperplasia, intracellular edema, and focal degranulation of eosinophils

Nothing by itself: IF this is your esophageal biopsy, then chances are you have mild reflux esophagitis. The pathologist may also note whether any malignant cells were seen, or anything else nastier was noted. ...Read more

Which causes muscle cells to generate new cells testosterone or Mechano growth factor?

Which causes muscle cells to generate new cells testosterone or Mechano growth factor?

Muscle growth: Many men desire muscular development and this has been so probably for many thousands of years. As a physician I have seen this done consistently well and healthy through sensible weight training which stimulates muscle development through human growth factor, Testosterone and other natural endogenous substances. Avoid exogenous supplements (such as steroids and probably Mechano ) Go natural! ...Read more

Satisfactory for evaluation. Endocervical cells are present Reactive cellular changes associated with inflammation?

Satisfactory for evaluation. 
Endocervical cells are present
Reactive cellular changes associated with inflammation?

Irritated Cervix: "Satisfactory for evaluation Endocervical cells are present" means that it was a good sample and contains the proper cells for evaluation. "Reactive cellular changes associated with inflammation" means that inflammation is present. Cervical inflammation can result from simple irritation or an infection on the cervix. It doesn't mean there is any cancer or pre-cancer there. Best wishes! ...Read more
