3.3cm soft tissue dens ant/sup mediastinum likely residual or reactive thymus tissue? Does ur need biopsy?
Could be either: The thymus tends to involute in adults and often is just a small vestige of an organ. It can however become active under certain circumstances. The most concerning issue would be a thymoma or tumor of the thymus gland. That is often seen in neurological conditions like myasthenia gravis. I would be curious to know how/why this was found. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The body is composed of tissue that are classically described as beiing derived from three basic embyonic layers known as the endoderm, mesoderm and ectoderm that then differentiate into the structures that compose the body such as skin, soft tissues, bone, muscle, organs, etc. Stem cells are not differentiated and have the potential to ...Read more
Ct Rpt- curvilinear soft tissue density with irregular peripheral margins in the subcutaneous fat in thigh measures 16.4 x 2.3 x 10.1cm - Sarcoma?
Possible liposarcoma: Large tumor masses in thigh usually represent sarcoma. In subcutaneous fat probably liposarcoma but dx must be established by complete removal and examination of lesion. A large liposarcoma may be composed of benign lipoma in 70-80% of lesion and 20-30 % sites of sarcoma. An at random bx in the OR can frequently yield a dx of a benign lesion when complete examination reveals the malignancy/ ...Read more
Which connective tissue diseases cause a skin rash? Punch biopsy suggestive of early connective tissue disease.
Both: Injecting platelet rich plasma is supposed to amplify the response of the repair cells by supplying growth factors to the area of injection. It's a good theory, but evidence of other than short term changes is lacking. ...Read more

My breast biopsyshows fragmants of breast tissue with fibrotic stroma,some dilated ducts and inflammatory cells infltration.does it refers to cancer?
What is a "connective tissue disease"? Had punch biopsy on rash, suggestive of early connective tissue disease. What is "connective tissue?"
Connective tissue: This is a constellation of disease affecting the supporting tissue throughout the body. It involves fat, cartilage,bone.there are different types with names such as Eleros Danlos , Marfans syndrome, Osteogensis imperfecta, they are all a result of gene dysfunction.ie are inheritable disorders. Most are fairly uncommon. The treatment varies depending on the specific areas involved ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mri biopsy of 6cm non mass : variable fibroadipose tissue and a tiny cyst lined by epocrine metaplasia. Is this benign breast disease or missed cancer?
What does this mean: myocardial perfusion imaging adversely affected by soft breast tissue attenuation
Imaging Artifact: Soft tissue attenuation in the breast is a common artifact in myocardial perfusion imaging. It may artifactually affect the depiction of activity in the myocardial wall. If perfusion defect is seen on both stress & rest images and normal wall motion & wall thickness shown on ecg-gated spect then apparent fixed defect is an artifact of attenuation instead of an area of myocardial infarction. ...Read more
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
Mesothelioma biopsy says 'portions of fibrous tissue infiltrated by malignant cells forming nests. tumor cells +'ve for CK7 and calretinin. prognosis?
Marker not prognosis: CK7 and calretinin are used to verify that the tumor is mesothelial in origin (versus adenocarcinoma of the lung). It does not provide information about prognosis. Factors associated with pleural mesothelioma prognosis include: functional status, blood counts, histology (epithelial best vs fibrosarcomatous poorest), and tumor size (degree of involvement of pleural cavity). Several new trials. ...Read more

Comparison is made to previous studies
The mammary tissue is heterogeneously dense which lowers the sensitivity of mammography. Apparently new compared to previous studies is a smoothly marginated 7mm low density ovoid nodule a
I don't have the : full report, but it sounds like there might be a new finding on screening mammography. The next step is usually a more complete imaging evaluation with diagnostic mammography and probably ultrasound. A final diagnostic code(BIRADS) for the nodule will be determined based on the imaging findings: benign(no followup),probably benign(6 month f/u), suspicious, highly suspicious( needle biopsy ) ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes : 4d ultrasound can gather 3d volumes and represents the difference between video and a still. These images can show the difference between normal and diseased tissue. ...Read more
Please interpret this tissue biopsy. Fibrous pericardium with granulation tissue and fibrinous exudate. There is mild fibroplasia?
Healing: The pericardium has been injured in some way, perhaps by surgery or there may be a healing infection. What is means most of all is there isn't tumor. ...Read more
