I found out yesterday that I have an aggravated/enlarged cervix. What can I do or what needs to be done? The symptoms and pain don't go away.

I found out yesterday that I have an aggravated/enlarged cervix. What can I do or what needs to be done? The symptoms and pain don't go away.

Seek Clarification: The terms enlarged and aggravated are not clear or medically sound. If aggravated means that you have cervicitis then that is treated with antibiotics and testing to determine the infectious cause. I am not sure why you would be told your cervix is enlarged. The size of the cervix is highly variable from person to person and not clinically relevant. It would not indicate a problem. ...Read more

I am pregnant from 39 weeks.How can I enlarge or dilate the cervix for an easier delivery?

I am pregnant from 39 weeks.How can I enlarge or dilate the cervix for an easier delivery?

Unproven techniques.: Some midwives recommend a large bouncing ball to achieve cervical ripening at term. Others do a vigorous cervical examination (stripping of the amniotic membranes) or offer nipple stimulation as an alternative. My approach to all those techniques is the same: unproven benefit and possible fetal risks do not justify using any of those options. Nature will take care of cervical ripening for you. ...Read more

I am 18 years old , and i think I have something wrong with my cervix. It is sideways and feels enlarged. I also have almost constant, white discharge

Hmmmm: Some women do have a lot of natural discharge. Normal colors of mucous are white, clear, grey, green, yellow. These can change based on diet and hydration level. Unless you have experience distinguishing normal from an abnormal cervix, it would be hard to say if there is anything wrong with yours. A cervix is mostly round to oval depending on pregnancies. But if in doubt have your doc check. ...Read more

What are the causes of an enlarged uterus with a heterogeneous texture? Measuring at 128×40×80mm. Cyst on cervix also. Had pelvic pain 3 years.

What are the causes of an enlarged uterus with a heterogeneous texture? Measuring at 128×40×80mm. Cyst on cervix also. Had pelvic pain 3 years.

Uterus: By the measurements your uterus is certainly enlarged. One cause is fibroid tumors. These are easily seen on ultrasound and would have been mentioned on your report. The combination of the pain and the enlargement suggests that you might have adenomyosis, a non-cancerous condition. An MRI might be helpful in diagnosing this. ...Read more

Unsure: Ct is not the best way to image the female pelvis. This could be normal for you or there may be something abnormal. I would recommend a pelvic ultrasound and physical exam to make sure everything is okay. ...Read more

Sharp pelvic pain w/nausea, sweat, & dizziness. Dr says tender cervix & enlrgd uterus. Went for ultrasound & OBG in a few days. What could this be?

Sharp pelvic pain w/nausea, sweat, & dizziness. Dr says tender cervix & enlrgd uterus. Went for ultrasound & OBG in a few days. What could this be?

A few ideas: Sharp pain with nausea etc., could be a sign of endometriosis or adenomyosis, especially with enlarged uterus and tender cervix. Could also be an infection like endometritis or STD . The approach for these are hormonal and antibiotics, respectively. Both are a little tricky to diagnose as well. Make sure you're not pregnant or dehydrated, first. Doctor may recommend a biopsy to diagnose. ...Read more

CT scan showed non specified borderline enlarged mesenteric lymph nodes in the RT lower quadrant, my uterus and cervix appears bulky and heterogenous.

CT scan showed non specified borderline enlarged mesenteric lymph nodes in the RT lower quadrant, my uterus and cervix appears bulky and heterogenous.

CT scan: These imaging studies are simply adjuncts to a good thorough clinical evaluation and cannot give you a diagnosis with any reliability. The doctor who ordered this is using it as a part of a more thorough workup and would stick with them and let them complete their assessment. May need biopsies. Good luck and best wishes. ...Read more
