Excess estrogen : This is suggestive of an increased estrogen state and maybe be a precursor to endometrial hyperplasia. alternatively it may be a component of a polyp. If you are in hormone supplements or tamoxifen you should consider stopping them. It warrants follow up with periodic re biopsy yo make sure nothing else is brewing. The good news is they didn't see any tumor. ...Read more

Nothing serious yet: This report suggests slightly abnormal changes (atypia & increased cell proliferation) which can be a reaction to irritation but there is no definitive evidence of precancerous change (VIN). In short there is nothing to worry about right now unless you are concerned and you'd like a second opinion ...Read more

What does BENIGN ENDOMETRIUM W/ ATROPHIC CHANGES & FEATURES OF GLANDULAR & STROMAL BREAKDOWN mean? NEG FOR HYPHYPERPLASIA, ATYPIA, OR MALIGNANCY.

Pathology 101: An endometrial biopsy is usually done to look for cancer, and the pathologist here saw no signs of cancer (malignancy/atypia) in the sample obtained. The other findings can be seen with or close to menopause (natural or induced by surgery or medications), and can be normal in many situations, but context (why the test was done) is important to be able to interpret this result uniquely for you. ...Read more

MRI scan shows two small focal flair hot spots in either frontal lobes subcortically. Mild peri ventricular gliosis. Age related mild diffuse atrophy.

MRI scan shows two small focal flair hot spots in either frontal lobes subcortically. Mild peri ventricular gliosis. Age related mild diffuse atrophy.

Probably not...: ...significant. A few small lesions can be seen in many patients without an underlying problem. If there is any concern, then a repeat MR in 4-6 months can be performed. Without any interval change, then you should not worry. However, atrophy at your age is more worrisome and not common, and your Doctor should examine you closely for any underlying cause. ...Read more

Thyroid sono results:"heterogeneous gland suggesting multinodular goiter -no discrete dominant masses observed"-what does this mean?

Lumpy!: Opinions vary, but... Especially for women, thyroid nodules are very common. These are sometimes familial or inherited and are sometimes more common later in life. There is little to worry about, especially without a specific "dominant" nodule over ~1cm. You should get thyroid blood work and a followup ultrasound within a few months. If the gland is huge, you may need treatment. ...Read more
