Doctor insights on:
Difficult to say: Sounds like an ultrasound report maybe. It may mean that there is a mass with some solid and some cystic (fluid-filled component). It depends on the modality of the test (ultrasound or ct) and the location as to the diagnostic significance. Please discuss with the doctor who ordered the test and maybe resubmit this question and include more relevant information to get a good answer. ...Read more

Submandibular region demonstrate a mid echogenicity mass 15 mm in length with a central vascular hilum. Meaning? Causes?
My dr suspects PSTT but says I need a biopsy before surgery? The mass is 7 cm and has an adjacent heterogenous echogenic mass against. Isn't a biopsy before surgery a waste of time? I would need additional referrals. Trying to get to uc Irvine quickly.
Alternative: A fine needle aspiration / punch or core biopsy should be the first step. Loma Linda is also a good choice ...Read more
My doctor said they found an echogenic mass in my fetus' liver during my 20 week ultrasound. What could this mean?
The ultrasound: Report should have provided potential causes for this finding and recommendations (if any needed) for further evaluation. If it didn't then consider a more detailed fetal ultrasound at a center offering level 2 or level 3 studies. These centers have greater expertise in fetal ultrasound and can often answer questions which arise on a screening study. ...Read more

Mixed echogenic mass measuring 4.1cm x 4.1cm is seen in the fundal region. UTERINE fibroid was concluded. Will it reduce my chance of getting pregnant?
Seen on ultrasound: Means they saw something (a mass)in the endometrium (the inner lining of the uterus).

Many times these are benign polyps but need to discuss with provider who ordered the test. Sorry not more helpful. Best of luck with this. Dr R ...Read more
What does it mean if you have a echogenic left adnexal mass during early pregnancy? Is that dangerous to baby hCG is still doubling & have yolk/gest
Probably OK: This is a cyst of some sort. There is a type of ovarian cyst that supports the pregnancy at the beginning until the placenta develops, or this could be from your endometriosis. Since you are seeing an early pregnancy in the uterus, the chance of this being a tubal pregnancy is remote. ...Read more

I m 26 yrs old. My left ovary shows a mass of complex echogenicity measuring 4.90 ×4.90 cm. What I need to do for that? ?
Obgyn evaluation: You will need to see an Obgyn and have them do an examination. They will also want to review the pelvic sonogram that showed the complex ovarian mass.

The main principle is to have a close relationship with your doctor. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more
My ultrasound I had done today said I had cortical echogenicity in both yet it could be from the technique vs renal mass. Should I be concerned?
That's sounds very wishy washy. You either have normal echogenicity or increased encgencity. You should ask your nephrologist if you have one.
You definitely don't want to have a possible renal mass. You might need more imaging. Most renal imaging needs contrast - as your radiologist

LIVER ENLARGED & ECHOGENIC CONSISTENT WITH NONSPECIFIC HEPATIC PARENCHYMAL DISEASE SUCH AS STEATOSIS. NO FOCAL MASS IS SEEN. Spleen size 16cm??

There should be a coordinated laboratory values to help make sense of imaging results. Not a good idea to speculate on cause without more data. Speak to your doctor for more data ...Read more
I had an ultrasound down on a mass in my leg and it was found to have an echogenic ring with a hypoechoic center what is this? It is about the size of a pea and is tender to the touch.,
An: An echogenic ring with a hypoechoic center may represent a cyst or abscess. If it is red and tender I would favor abscess (infection) and suggest that you see a surgeon. If it is around the knee or ankle and isn't red, it is more likely a synovial cyst. Synovial cyst would be less urgent, but may also warrant an orthopedic surgery evaluation. ...Read more

Small lump in back of throat when swallowing. Have ill- defined mass just to the right of isthmus, isthmus nodule with several echogenic foci. Cancer?
2 different issues: A lump at the back of your throat might easily be a lymph node. If it has been there a while and isn't changing it probably needs to be biopsied to prove its not cancer. You don't state risk factors such a alcohol and tobacco exposure. The thyroid nodule is in front and would have to metastasize to the node. 1-2cm 10% risk. ...Read more

Very complex questio: I would suggest that you use HealthTap Prime to set up regular visits with a knowledgeable doctor to get better guidance. 1st, the US cannot diagnose early cirrhosis. 2nd, your fibroscan results 5 mo ago were normal (in 90-95% of people), ie less than 7 kPa. 3rd, your AST to platelet ratio index (APRI) is prob less than 1, depending on the reference range in lab report. All 3 argue against cirrhos ...Read more

Small nodule.: When something is echogenic, it's brighter than the adjacent tissues or the background tissue of the organ. Technically it should be termed "hyperechoic" but "echogenic" is more commonly used. It also means that it's more likely (not always) solid than fluid. A "nodule" is small, usually less than 2 cm in size. ...Read more
EIF: If you are referring to an 'echogenic intracardiac focus', seen in a fetus during a sonogram- then it is essentially a bright white spot, seen within a chamber of the baby's heart, having the same brightness as bone. It is considered a 'soft' marker for down's syndrome. It is present in 15-30% of fetuses that have down's syndrome, and ~5% of normal fetuses. Additional testing (amnio, harmony, mat21. ...Read more
