Dad 69yrs old CT scan result says: urinary bladder appears thickwalled+trabeculated 0.9CM along right lateral wall. what does this mean? Infection?
Obstruction or tumor: Hi Johnny, This is abnormal. The thickened, trabeculated wall can be caused by the bladder working against an obstruction. Is there difficulty urinating? A tumor or cancer is a possibility, but sounds unlikely. An infection usually causes symptoms such as burning. A urinalysis would help to identify an infection or tumor. A discussion with his doctor and a Urology consult should be done. ...Read more
Hard, 1cm round lump under skin front upper thigh unchanged for 7 years. Is it cancer? Female age 35.
Probably not!: A 1cm lump that has not changed for 7 years is very unlikely to be cancer! Why? Because cancer grows, especially if it is not treated. What you describe sounds like a benign mass or cyst. An ultrasound and/or biopsy would give you a diagnosis, but it might not be necessary. Ask your primary care provider to take a look at this next time you're in. And read about lipomas to see if that fits! ...Read more

Small growth: Anyone can get a uterine fibroid, which is an overgrowth of muscle cells in the shape of a ball. Like moles on the skin, they come in different sizes/shapes; RARELY cancerous. You only need surgery if you have symptoms like pain/pressure/incontinence/bleeding/bloating. Size/location don't matter. Lupron (leuprolide) or embolization are ways to control w/out surgery. US follow up is very important. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How dangerous is an ECG tracing- right nundle branch block septal wall ischemia for an 8 yo/ female child? She's having squeezing chestpain recently.
Possibly Dangerous: I am a pediatric cardiologist. I agree with the other answer--i would strongly recommend you take your child to see a pediatric cardiologist as soon as possible if you haven't already. The diagnosis of bundle branch block and ischemia is serious, but it depends where it is coming from. Machines are not good at interpreting pediatric ecgs. Again, please see a pediatric cardiologist asap. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
