Microbleeds refer to small amounts of blood in the regions you described likely referring to small vessel ischemic stroke. Recovery is variable depending on how widespread. GET MRI--More info?

My collar bone is sticking out (past 60 days). I've been told via a CT scan it's a ganglion cyst pushing the bone. Should I request an MRI?

My collar bone is sticking out (past 60 days). I've been told via a CT scan it's a ganglion cyst pushing the bone. Should I request an MRI?

No point unless Symp: Unless you're having symptoms related to the collar bone (or unexplained symptoms), there's no point to the MRI. It will only show you the ganglion cyst that you know is already there. It won't push you towards surgery, especially if you don't have symptoms, unless you've talked to a surgeon. Get the CT scan report & image b4 talking to your doctor or use HealthTap Prime to discuss further. Thanks ...Read more

After lump and bruising on top of foot I had a ct (no contrast) and was diagnosed with a ganglion cyst. Can a radiologist tell this is a ganglion and not a tumor from just looking at the scan? They seemed very confident but I'm over researching.
