What is large mixed echogenic mass?

Difficult to say

Open-uri20130906-29003-o98mqv
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.

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

The ultrasound

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.

Submandibular region demonstrate a mid echogenicity mass 15 mm in length with a central vascular hilum. Meaning? Causes?

Nothing good.

Vascular
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.

Dr. Timothy Brown answered:

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

Premature
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.

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

Usually fatty

Liver
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.

7 weeks PP with continuous vaginal bleeding. ultrasound said uterus contains avascular heterogenous mass with bright echogenic component. ??

Uterus pp

Uterus
After 7 weeks pp your uterus should be of normal size. I would definetly be worried about it and would perform an HCG quantitative to make sure its zero. There are serious pathologies that can ocurr pp or after any type of pregnancy. Also placenta might be retained inside the uterus . Please follow up with your doctor

Dr. Alan Feldman answered:

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

Thyroid
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.

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

Open-uri20121120-14207-k5tpfw
thats sounds very wishy washy. You either have normal echogenicity or increased encgencity. You should ask your nephrologist if you have one. You definitely dont want to have a possible renal mass. You might need more imaging. Most renal imaging needs contrast - as your radiologist *who is me

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

Nodule
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.

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.
