What is large mixed echogenic mass?

What is large mixed echogenic mass?

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.

Nothing good.: You likely need to have this biopsied, if you smoke or drink see an ENT doctor to make sure you do not have a cancer of the throat.

Hi, 3.71 x 4.35cm mixed echogenic mass in fundal part of uterus implies what pls?

It is most likely: A benign fibroid, but talk to your doctor about the results to make sure.

My doctor said they found an echogenic mass in my fetus' liver during my 20 week ultrasound. What could this mean?

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.

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?

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?

Not usually: Most fibroids do not decrease the fertility. The number of fibroids, location in the uterus. symptoms, are all factors in assessing a patient with fibroids to determine if surgical intervention is needed or not

What does it mean when you have an echogenic endometrial mass in the uterus?

What does it mean when you have an echogenic endometrial mass in the uterus?

Seen on ultrasound: Means they saw something (a mass)in the endometrium (the inner lining of the uterus). Further discussion with your gynecologist is warranted and possible further testing or imaging might be needed. Cannot tell you anything more than that. 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

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

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.

My radiologist report : liver displays raised parenchymal echogenicity with no mass lesion or dilated ducts. My Blood test : GGT reading is 285 H IU/L?

My radiologist report : liver displays raised parenchymal echogenicity with no mass lesion or dilated ducts. My Blood test : GGT reading is 285 H IU/L?

Good news/bad news: Your liver does not have any tumor or cyst formation; however, GGT elevation suggests irritation/inflammation (alcohol. hepatitis, infection etc.) Abstain from any/all alcohol and certainly get screen for infectious hepatitis A, B and C.

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? ?

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. After they do this they should be able to determine if this is a mass that will resolve on its own or if surgical removal is needed.

Need more info: You are describing an ultrasound finding, but it could mean different thing in different parts of the body. What body part contains the complex cystic mass?

Ultrasound for liver says liver echogenicity appears somewhat coarsened and inhomogeneous but no focal liver mass is evidnet?

Ultrasound for liver says liver echogenicity appears somewhat coarsened and inhomogeneous but no focal liver mass is evidnet?

Usually fatty: The most common reason for that phrase in your age group is fatty infiltration of the liver. Ask the doctor that ordered the exam, if any further testing is needed. A fatty liver diagnosis may help explain if you had lab tests that revealed abnormal liver function.

My ultrasound report says that there appears ti be a mass with mixed echogenicity near the pouch of douglas, measuring 8.8cm x 5.8 cm x 7.8 cm.

My ultrasound report says that there appears ti be a mass with mixed echogenicity near the pouch of douglas, measuring 8.8cm x 5.8 cm x 7.8 cm.

It is important: That you follow up with your GYN to discuss this result and potential next step in management. He/she may decide to offer a transvaginal ultrasound, or refer you to a GYB Surgeon for a biopsy. Or he/she may simply offer treatment for a condition known. The main principle is to have a close relationship with your doctor. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.

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?

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?

Hmmm: 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 *who is me.

I have a 4.2cm solid mass left thyroid homogeneous echotexture increased echogenicity and increased vascularity by us coold this be malignant?

I have a 4.2cm solid mass left thyroid homogeneous echotexture increased echogenicity and increased vascularity by us coold this be malignant?

Yes, but unlikely: Most thyroid nodules are benign. However, if this truly grew from 3.3 to 4.2 cm over the course of 1 month, that would raise the suspicion of thyroid cancer considerably. You clearly need to have a fine needle biopsy of this nodule performed.

Question incomplete!: Your question is incomplete. With any mass, after assessment, it is common to monitor over time, if there is no evidence of cancer. It is always smart to get a second opinion, and you are entitled to one.
