Cervical smear test result contains superficial and intermediate squamous cells metaplastic cells & neutrophils cells in background neg for NILM?
Nilm: Means negative for intraepithelial lesions or malignancy (so negative for bad things - I.e., all good). The squamous, metaplastic and neutrophil cells are all normal cells. The idea of Pap smear is to catch cervical precancer or cancer and it doesn't see either here which is great! ...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

fnac shows smears shows dispersed sertoli cells admixed with leydig cells and germ cells?
NOA?: I think you have what we might call non-obstructive azoospermia despite a few sperms. We only need the number of sperm to match the eggs from your partner. Needle aspiration is usually not reliable in this situation so open biopsy may be more successful. With so few sperm, you need ivf/icsi. Consult your specialist who has the details of your situation. Best wishes. ...Read more
Normal blood count with blood smear leukocyte; particles of toxic granulation, atypical cells lenfomo nuclear, one cell view of downey. Male, 58 ?
Typical cell: This is a typical cell type (both the lymphocytes with toxic granulation and the Downey cell, which similar is a lymphocyte with features consistent with activation). These occur in the context of infection or stress when the lymphocytes are receiving "danger" signals. Can't comment conclusively without knowing more about the clinical situation, but not likely something that needs follow up. ...Read more

Lymphcytes: When blood is examined under the microscope an array of cells are defined mostly RBC but also larger white cells known as polymorphoneuclear WBC's, marcrophages and a group of small round cells known as lymphocytes. Robt Good was able to subclassify them into T and B cells, the former providing the cytotoxic CD8 cells and B cells producing antibody to attack invaders. ...Read more

Need more info: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Mild increase in mast cells may not be meaningful depending on the context of the clinical picture. You may wish to consult the pathologist who examined the biopsy tissue for a more detailed interpretation. ...Read more
My fna of thyroid revealed groups of epithelial cells in macrofollicular patterns. Are these bad/pre-cancer cells? What should follow up treatment be?
Ask your doctor.: Epithelial cells in macrofollicular patterns are usually benign thyroid cells and are usually not associated with a premalignant or malignant process. This is good news. Ask the doctor who ordered the fna to help you interpret the report and to answer your questions. That person will be able to give you information in the context of your personal clinical setting. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No ovulation: This is a description of endometrium that has been in the proliferative (growing or recovery) phase for too long. That is the phase which normally preceeds ovulation. After ovulation, the endometrium moves into the secretory phase during which an embryo can be received if pregnancy takes place; otherwise a normal menstrual phase (period) begins. Hormonal treatment may be necessary if out of order. ...Read more
