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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
Gyn cytology report reads "rare hyperchromatic groups of atypical cells". Does rare in this case mean "few" or a rare group i.e. a rare cancer?
My urine analysis says the urine is clear but the cytology report says it's cloudy. I have only squamous and urothelial cells present. Why is that?
Urinalysis: Urinalysis does not detect squamous cells or urinary sediment. "Cloudy" urine is usually due to heavy urinary sediment if infection has been ruled out. This may be a result of incomplete voiding, inadequate fluid ingestion or medications precipitating out in your urine. ...Read more
