Aging/activity: As we get older we develop some degree of osteoarthritis in many of our joints. The speed of these changes depends on the wear and tear/trauma or how much activity we have and are enduring. Reactive endplate changes may be considered some of the earliest changes in osteoarthritis we can get. In my opinion theses are common in people in their 40's and do not mean severe disease is going to occur. ...Read more
About papsmear, it says reactive cellular changes associated with acute mild inflammation. Atrophy. What does it means?
: Slightly coarse and heterogeneous hepatic parenchymal echotexture without substantial change. No focal lesion identified.?
More to it than this: This looks to be part of a report of an ultrasound and this portion of the report is discussing the echotexture pattern of the liver. Nothing in what you posted is very concerning. No focal lesion identified is a good thing, but the whole report including reason study done would be more helpful. Please discuss findings with doctor who ordered it for you. Best of luck with this. Dr R ...Read more

If your chlamydia test and gonnerea tests were negative, you have no pain or discharge, it the pathologists way if saying "there could be an infection, we're not sure" it doesn't mean there is one and most often not. Generally it's an incidental finding. ...Read more
