Doctor insights on:
Just had colonoscopy. Sigmoid colon: a diminutive adenomatous looking polyp and a hyper plastic polyp. transverse colon: adenomatous polyp. Bad? Thnx
Colonoscopy results-tubular adenoma colon polyp, diverticulosis&hemorrhoids. I was told prep not complete-should I repeat colonoscopy sooner than 3yr?
Does "lesion near cecum " found from colonscopy suggest appendix protruding mass? Having CT scan. GI doc says it's most likely benign.
R.O malignancy: A number of different lesions develop within the bowel including the region of the cecum in close proximity to the appendix. When lesion "non defined" seen both on colonoscopy and by CT scan, a histologic dx needed. Lesion may range from adenoma, to malignant polyp to adenocarcinoma to GIST to carcinoid and probably requires resection even if AP based, Bowel lesions rarely left untreated. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Colonoscopy for blood/mucus in stool showed diverticulosis.retroperitaneal lymph node 2.1 cm. Peripancreatic l. node 1.3 CM on CT scan.from colo dx?
Mammo:ill marginated focal assymetry, sono:two lipomas or intramamary lymphs, mri:looks benign but birads 4, and recommends biopsy.Im confused/scared!
Seek expert opinion: I would advise that you consult a breast cancer surgeon or medical oncologist who has reputation of being a specialist in breast diseases/cancer. Based on your history, you may need to have a biopsy of the lumps/masses/ shadows that you have mentioned. That is the final solution to any palpable/visible lump in the breast. This will remove your anxiety which is due to the uncertainty you are facin. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Need more info: "cancerous change" can mean many things. There are different pre-cancerous changes seen on breast biopsies, such as ADH (vasopressin) or alh (atypical ductal or atypical lobular hyperplasia). There are early cancers called dcis or lcis (ductal carcinoma in situ or lobular carcinoma in situ). Hopefully this is nothing, but we need more information. Make sure to follow-up with your doctor! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ct findings 6.1x3.7x2.1cm intramuscular lipomatous gastrocnemius mass. Likely lipoma. MRI advised. Was told do nothing unless worsens.I'm Concerned?
Get MRI to be sure: MRI is better than CT to characterize soft tissue masses. IV contrast would likely be used for lipoma analysis. These statements assume the patient is a candidate for MRI and contrast. Lipomas are benign, but it is nice to almost completely exclude a rare liposarcoma--less than 3 in a million people diagnosed in a year. MRI along with a benign history and presentation does this. ...Read more
3-5mm Sessile polyp removed from descending colon during colonoscopy. What are the odds it's a hyperplastic polyp? Should I be concerned?
Friend had ct scan diverticulitis, no symptoms feels great. Bowel thickening, possible sigmoid abscess. Could ct scan be wrong? Needs colonoscopy.
Should i worry about pancreatic cancer?Urq disc.&occ floating stool. Normal stool tests, CT scan, colonoscopy, u.S., hida scan, endoscopy=gerd/gast. Im 34
Probably not: It appears that all test are normal except for the egd or endoscopy showing gastritis. Assuming normal blood workup as well, i would say that it is not likely that you have pancreatic cancer. My suggestion is that you sit down with your doctor and discuss all tests results and treatment plan. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
?Early detection tes: CT scan is not a good Test for early detection of Colon Cancer, so Colonoscopy is the preferred test because it accomplishes 2 objectives...detect polyps/precursors of colon cancer and remove them at the same time which eliminates the risk of Polyps changing into cancer. If you have difficulty with having Colonoscopy, then you should ask your doctor to suggest some alternative tests for checking. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
