Fish Cytology Test
I have been urinating 15-33x a day for months. UA is clean. Dr. Ordered a urine cytology and ultrasound. What other tests would you recommend?
What does reactive transitional cells, crystals, cellular degeneration present and white blood cells observed mean in urine cytology test. Thank you?
Recent infection: Chances are that you're getting over a bladder infection. Crystals mean nothing. Repeating the study might be wise.
I have had 3 urine tests since August, all 3 showed hematuria and high ketones. One cystoscopy, negative cytology. Is this a concern, or need work up?
Had sputum cytology test come back with atypical results, but not cancerous, I just has a CT scan and all clear as well. What could this be?
Urine cytology test showed benign urothelial cells negative for malignancy, some red blood cells. Blood test-increase in neutrophils. Sould I worry?
Urine Cytology: If the urine cytology provided a good sample, you needn't worry about a bladder tumor. The increased white cell count (coupled with the red cells in the urine) could signify a bladder infection or inflammatory process, but without further history, it is difficult to pinpoint. A simple urinalysis may help clarify whether you have a bladder infection or not. An increased WBC is entirely non-specific.See 1 more doctor answer
What tests should one perform after realizing that he has hematuria after urine cytology tests having polycystik kidney disease and hypertension? Help
Polycystic Kidneys: Polycystic kidney disease (pckd) is a chronic condition, and can result in kidney failure if you don't follow up regularly with your doctor. You will need regular blood work and monitoring by a nephrologist (kidney specialist), regular follow up ultrasounds or ct scans of your kidneys, and you will need good blood pressure control to prevent damage to your kidneys.See 2 more doctor answers

Bilateral nipple discharge with stimulation, cytology was negative, no lump or mass seen on u/s.Is this accurate test for breast cancer?
Sort of: Cytology is not a great test to rule out cancer in the case of nipple discharge. Ultrasound is a good test but also doesn't rule out cancer. However bilateral discharge, only with stimulation, is extremely unlikely to represent cancer, especially at your age. Unilateral, spontaneous discharge is more concerning, as is bloody nipple discharge.See 1 more doctor answer

Cytology: Is the study of cells, where they came from, how they work, how they go wrong, etc.
How long does it typically take to receive the results from a urine cytology? It's been 9 days and I still haven't received the results.
Cytology: It depends on the pathology lab. Generally 4-5 working days unless they have to send it out to a larger lab. In those instances it can take a 7 or more working days.
Yes: In short, yes, pneumonia can cause abnormal cells to show up on a sputum cytology- typically we see bacteria or fungus, both possible causes of the pneumonia. Did your doctor or the report tell you exactly what kind of abnormal cells are present? That can say a lot about the source of the abnormal cells. There are numerous other causes for abnormal cells on cytology so talk to your doc to clarify.
Typically 3 days: That is minimally 3 days usually.Get a more detailed answer ›
Pretty much: Accurate histopathologic evaluation of lymphomas requires a tissue biopsy, preferably an intact lymph node. Fnas suggesting the presence of a lymphoma should be followed up with a definitive tissue biopsy. Some centers use fna as an initial screening test to determine if the patient's lymphadenopathy is a benign reactive form. The accurate diagnosis of lymphoma based on fna is not possible.See 1 more doctor answer
