Hsg Test Cancer
On an HSG test can you see abnormalities in the uterus ? For example , endometriosis? Or signs of uterine cancer?
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
Possible: A hystosalpingogram is an x-ray taken while radioactive dye is pushed through the uterus. It is definitely not a screening exam for either uterine or ovarian cancer. However, if your radiologist or physician were to see an abnormality on the exam, they would report/investigate the lesion. If you're worried about these cancers, talk to your doctor about your risk factors. ...Read more
Not why done!: Neither test is primarily done to, "clear out the tubes". The hsg is done to evaluate the tubes for patency, strictures, scarring, dilatation, etc. Tubes that are otherwise normal appearing but with mucous plugs may be cleared by the hsg. The sis may have similar results but if there are other tubal issues there could then be increased risk of ectopic implantation. ...Read more
Happens: Some doctors grab the cervix with a device that actually makes a small puncture which can cause a little spotting. Should not be a big deal. I preferred devices that grabbed with vacuum without making a puncture. ...Read more
Does the HSG test make you super fertile? If this is true, how long do you wait after the test to try and conceive?
I have done my wife hsg test she have an hydrosalpanix tublar blokage at the fimbler end, from last 2 year, and she told be4 2months she is pregnent?
Tube blkd/pregnant?: Having an HSG which shows fimbrial blockage on one or both sides can open the tubes during the procedure and permit later pregnancy. From the history presented, it is unclear whether she is pregnant now, or whether she was told she "may become" pregnant, but it is possible after an HSG for pregnancy to occur, but it is rare with both sides blocked. ...Read more
Almost none: There are rare cases of patients having an allergy to the contrast material (dye) that is used during the procedure. If someone has a known allergy to x-ray dye from a previous x-ray procedure (ex. Cat scan or ivp study) they can still have the procedure but would be pre-medicated with steroids and anti-histamines prior to the exam. ...Read more
Yes - it's ok: The paraovarioan cyst will not interfere with the hsg. The hsg checks the pathway of your eggs and will ensure that your tubes are open and that the endometrium (area of the uterus where the baby will develop) is structurally normal. ...Read more
Many other reasons: The hsg checked your tubes and the inside cavity of your uterus. The most common other issues are: low egg supply (diminished ovarian reserve), problems with ovulation including polycystic ovarian syndrome (pcos), hormonal problems like thyroid or prolactin issues, endometriosis, fibroids and/or sperm problems. Your partner needs a semen analysis. See a rei specialist for help getting pregnant. ...Read more

ALARA: All radiologic exams should be operated using an as low as reasonably achievable--that is perform the test using as little radiation as needed to get the information required. That being said there is no formal limit for a given exam. ...Read more
Not 100%: No, it's not 100% accurate, but it's pretty good. There might be tubal spasms preventing the dye from passing through the tube. I believe you just had surgery, and it can take 2-3 months for healing to be complete. This might effect the results. If the HSG shows blocked tubes 3 months after your surgery, that would be concerning. A laparoscopy could be performed and a dye test done. ...Read more
Spills?: I am not familiar with the term ovary spills- can you elaborate? ...Read more
I had an HSG test done last month, and the doctor still hasn't gotten back to me on the results! is this normal?
Long time, call!: Seems like a really long while - you should call, likely no major problem just a communication failure. I usually review hsgs first with the patient at the hsg appointment, and then again a few days later. ...Read more
