What does it mean if amniotic fluid is thickening?

What does it mean if amniotic fluid is thickening?

Unsure: I am not sure what you are asking. Amniotic fluid is composed mostly of the baby's urine and should be watery like urine. If the amniotic fluid is becoming thick for any reason, it is unlikely to be a good thing. ...Read more

Dr saw thickening of uterine lining 5 mos. Ago. Had recheck ultrasound & lining is 9 mm with fluid. Having biopsy & really scared it's cancer.?

Dr saw thickening of uterine lining 5 mos. Ago. Had recheck ultrasound & lining is 9 mm with fluid. Having biopsy & really scared it's cancer.?

Its possible: 14% of patients who present with postmenopausal bleeding will have endometrial cancer so an endometrial biopsy is warranted. The most recent recommendation is that a thickness of <3mm be used as the cutoff for excluding endometrial cancer. Of course, with your being 9mm, evaluation is absolutely necessary. However, there is no need for panic. There is an 86% chance that your biopsy will be benign. ...Read more

Dr said thickening and fluid buildup in the lower inner quadrant of both breasts due to sports bra being too tight & worn often. How common is this?

Get a 2nd opinion: This seems like a very rare event. The symptoms could be symptoms of other things possibly missed by your doctor. Why would a tight sports braw cause this problem? Doesn't make sense to me. ...Read more

Is a thickening in the wall of uterus dangerous? I had an US done yesterday and Dr found that along with fluid and a membrane. Said everything is ok.

Thick: Depends on how thick? Also it depends on your symptoms. Biggest concern would be uterine cancer which can be screened with an endometrial biopsy in your doctors office or OB/gyn. Ask your provider if that is necessary. ...Read more

My x-ray results show I have Fibrotic scarring, right upper lobe Minimal fluid versus pleural thickening left costrophrenic sulcus. What is that means?

Need to see images: Based on the description you gave, I would need to see the images. It certainly could be some minimal scarring in the right upper lobe & nothing to worry about. It could also be some fluid there, which if that's that case, it would need to be sampled more than likely. The pleural thickening could be related to the fibrosis, or potentially another cause. Let me know if you can upload the xray. ...Read more

Cervical stenosis Hematometra US no thickening fluid debris. Pelvic discomfort. Dr isn't worried says fibroids US 6wks then D&C. I'm scared please help?

Don't Worry: Hi Debra,
If you are in pain, this would push me to recommend acting surgically sooner rather than later. At 60, you should have no accumulation of blood and very little clear fluid or mucous. Even though the Ultrasound said no thickening, I would take the opportunity to sample the lining of the uterus just to make sure. I am sure that everything will turn out fine. ...Read more

I have venous angioma on my left frontal lobe and thickening of para-nasal sinuses without fluid levels. What does this mean?

Please repost: You didn't just wander into a CT or MRI facility & make an impulse purchase. A doctor ordered a scan for a reason. The scan isn't the patient, you are. Please state the reason. Actually, the doc who ordered the test has the ethical obligation to clarify the findings for you, or if (s)he can't, to find someone who can. You have a right to an explanation in terms you can understand. ...Read more

Retroverted uterus is normal in size with thickened endometrium. Polycycstic ovaries. Minimal retrouterine fluid. Can I still get pregnant? How?

Retroverted uterus is normal in size with thickened endometrium. Polycycstic ovaries. Minimal retrouterine fluid. Can I still get pregnant? How?

PCOS: Most with PCOS have the effects of estrogen increase (without production of progesterone with ovulation) which make the endometrium "thicker". Without ovulation induction, those with PCOS will have minimal success in becoming pregnant. See a gyn endocrinologist to get information about ovulation induction medication, so pregnancy might more statistically often occur. ...Read more

It's: It's hard to answer this question without knowing exactly what the ultrasound report said. It's entirely normal for a woman to have a small amount of fluid in the pelvis around the time of ovulation. A large amount of fluid, or fluid in a woman who is post-menopausal, would be unusual. What is thickened? The endometrial stripe, which represents the linig of the uterus, changes its thickness dramatically during the menstrual cycle, so this may also be totally normal. An extremely thick endometrium could represent something called endometrial hyperplasia or adenomyosis, though these words would probably show up very specifically in your report.

Ultrasound can miss a very early pregnancy. However, by the time you miss a period, there may very well be signs of a pregnancy visible in the uterus. ...Read more

Enterocolitis?: Thickened colon is usually sign of inflamed or infected bowel such as Enterocolitis.

I have a thickened endometrial lining that is 17.5 mm (6 days past last day of period), it had been 16.4 the month before. Other findings were slightly enlarged uterus and some fluid found. Abnormal bleeding, etc. Is it Cancer? Biopsy done, waiting.

I have a thickened endometrial lining that is 17.5 mm (6 days past last day of period), it had been 16.4 the month before. Other findings were slightly enlarged uterus and some fluid found. Abnormal bleeding, etc. Is it Cancer? Biopsy done, waiting.

Thick uterine lining: At age 33, a woman not on oral (low dose) contraceptives produces a lot more estrogen as a function of increased stimulation of the ovaries to produce ovulation. This can cause increased growth of other estrogen sensitive areas. It is unlikely to be a malignancy at this age. A benign biopsy will provide guidance for other hormonal therapy to remedy this situation. ...Read more

Possible resolution: If there was a few days or more between tests, it is possible that whatever lesion that was seen on ultrasound resolved on its own. Ultrasound uterus and ovaries is sometimes a challenge based on intestinal issues and potentially what was seen on ultrasound could have been shadows of bowel. If you continue to have symptoms, repeat imaging in 4-6 weeks could be considered. ...Read more

A discgarge of fluid of the vaagina?

See doctor: Any abnormal or unexplained vaginal discharge should be professionally evaluated. Not nearly enough information to even guess at the cause. The possibilities vary with age, sexual lifestyle, contraceptive, whether or not you are pregnant, presence of other symptoms (e.g. pain, itching, sores, vaginal bleeding), and the discharge itself -- color, odor, menstrual cycle. See your doctor. Good luck! ...Read more
