Neck lymphnode biopsy: consistent with reactive lymphoid tissue with sinus histiocytosis and focal necrosis? (previous mono)
I did biopsy for a soft tissue in neck. Result - Fragmented biopsy shows hyperplastic squamous mucosa with mucosa associated lymphoid tissue. There is no evidence of dysplasia or malignancy.?
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. Having said that, there is nothing to be concerned about the result of the biopsy as long as biopsy tissue was representative or all of the lesion.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

My fiance has a high risk pregnancy. We went to an appointment to have an ultrasound and a check up done with our baby. We were told the baby has possible excess tissue on the back of the neck and possible hernia. She is ten weeks pregnant and the doctor
Unfortunately I am unable to give you any information on survival rates without knowing more information. Based on what is in your post, excess tissue on the back of the neck could be a sign of down's syndrome; the hernia depending on where it is carries different risks.
I would like to take this opportunity to use your case as a lesson for yourself/fiance and others. Never leave a doctor's appointment with unanswered questions. You have a right to have all your questions answered and everything explained to you in detail. If the ultrasound tech. Gave you that information you need to call the doctor right away and ask forn an explanation.
Make an appointment, call on the phone, write a letter. Do whatever you have to do to get answers.
Best of luck. ...Read more
I am a writer with a hypothetical question: can excessive amounts of spice cause damage to the throat? I've heard of it happening with sugar+soda etc.
Answer eludes me: Spicy food as well as soda cause gerd to get worse, stimulates acid in the stomach and if it results in reflux laryngitis, the answer is yes. I like to sing, and I perform, and I love spicy food, including wasabe, etc., and I have been fine. In this case, I may not be the best to answer it, but my answer, if there is no problem, enjoy life. Lol. ...Read more

There is white matter which appears to be growth within the tissue in the back of my throat. Is that normal?
Get evaluated: White matter in the pharynx is not "normal". A common cause is tonsil stone, however. This is debris that gathers in the tonsil tissue. That is entirely benign and will be expelled eventually. But this needs to be evaluated by your provider to ensure it is not more grave. ...Read more
