I've thickened posterior myometrium. 2 ill-defined, hypoechoic areas in the posterior myometrium measuring 2 x 1.5 CM and 1.9 x 1.6 cm. Meaning what?

I've thickened posterior myometrium. 2 ill-defined, hypoechoic areas in the posterior myometrium measuring 2 x 1.5 CM and 1.9 x 1.6 cm. Meaning what?

Fibroids: These sound like small fibroids. What did your physician say. The person who actually saw the images has the best possible opportunity for an accurate diagnosis. Make sure to follow up with your doctor so that you can be fully informed about your diagnosis.

What does "Vague area of heterogeneity in the posterior uterine myometrium without a discrete fibroid or mass." Mean & what could it be?

What does "Vague area of heterogeneity in the posterior uterine myometrium without a discrete fibroid or mass." Mean & what could it be?

This is a: "NON-SPECIFIC" finding. That means that it does NOT mean. ..anything! It could be a very EARLY fibroid but certainly NOT TO WORRY!

Hope this is helpful

Hypoechoic mass intrmural and solid is dangerous in posterior wall of uterus? Is here need of test CA125?

Hypoechoic mass intrmural and solid is dangerous in posterior wall of uterus? Is here need of test CA125?

Depends: This may be a fibroid. However, your gynecologist will order tests that are appropriate for your age and medical history.

There is 28x19x15mm hypoechoic lesion in the anterior myometrium in lower uterine segment. Do I need to be concerned? Is it affecting my fertility?

There is 28x19x15mm hypoechoic lesion in the anterior myometrium in lower uterine segment. Do I need to be concerned? Is it affecting my fertility?

Ask the GYN MD....: Ask the GYN MD who ordered the test that has shown the above abnormality. It is difficult to make a determination about a "concern" without the proper context of history, exam and reason for testing.

Bulky uterus. Myometrium thick and corase. Endometrium 14mm. Ovaries are normal. No adxenal mass?

Bulky uterus. Myometrium thick and corase. Endometrium 14mm. Ovaries are normal. No adxenal mass?

Not normal: I am sure your gyn probably told u that you need a hysteroscopy and endometrial sampling, I do those in office takes 5 minutes please discuss with your gyn.

Diffuse heterogeneity of the uterine myometrium w/o discrete mass sugg of adenomyosis and small fibroids pls explain the meaning of my US. WORRIED?

Adenomyosis: Your sonogram from what you have written is suggestive of adenomyosis. Women who have adenomyosis usually have pelvic pain chronically or severe pain just during their periods. Typical medications that women use to combat the pain are Motrin, Naprosyn, (naproxen) Alleve. There are birth control methods that can stop or decrease periods--Depo-Provera which can also be used to help with the pain.

Endometrium stripe is 12mm. Periods are always on time but extremely heavy with so many blood clots. I also have a heterogenous myometrium but without discrete focal mass lesion. Should I be worried? Do I need a biopsy?

Endometrium stripe is 12mm. Periods are always on time but extremely heavy with so many blood clots. I also have a heterogenous myometrium but without discrete focal mass lesion. Should I be worried? Do I need a biopsy?

Perimenopausal: At 45 yo with thickened endometrium and heavy menses with passage of clots will need evaluation to include cbc, pregnancy test and if negative, an endometrial biopsy procedure. If the above are negative, it is reasonable for a trial BCP or Non steroidal.

Age 46 pre menopausal. Bulky uterus. Myometrium thick and corase. Endometrium 14mm. Ovaries are normal. No adxenal mass. What is the issue?

Age 46 pre menopausal. Bulky uterus. Myometrium thick and corase. Endometrium 14mm. Ovaries are normal. No adxenal mass. What is the issue?

Is there bleeding?: The normal endometrium is about 5mm thick., I assume this is from ultrasound. Mri can see the junctional zone anatomy better. Ask your doctor if they think you could have endometrial thickening or adenomyosis.

No period for 3 mo. Doc sent me for a pelv. U/s-report says: hypoechoic foci in uterus up to 3cm. Anechoic focus in myometrium-5mm. What does it mean?

Cycles / sono: It is normal to have some variations in your hormones as one gets older. The reason for irregular cycles can not be determined from an ultrasound. Nothing in the ultrasound is threatening; it sounds as though there are small fibroids. Dr may want to check your thyroid levels and cycle you.

Plz explain my ultrsound report the anteverted uterus mesure 79x48x45mm a 6mm secretory phase endometrium is seen the left ovary measure 11cc and the right ovary measure 8cc no fluids or adnexal mass is seen. The myometrium appears heterogeneous in?

Looking for?: For postmenopausal women, transvaginal ultrasound evaluation of endometrial thickness may be used as an initial study to evaluate for endometrial neoplasia in selected women. For these women, it is reasonable to defer endometrial sampling if the endometrial thickness is <4 mm. Pelvic ultrasound is the imaging study of choice for the evaluation of an adnexal mass.

I have a 2.7 X1, 8X2.3 cm hypoechoic mass in my liver?

What's your question: I see that you reported a finding from an abdominal sonogram. In general, a hypoechoic mass should have additional evaluation. Do you have a more specific question?

What is a pancreatic hypoechoic circumscribed solid mass?

What is a pancreatic hypoechoic circumscribed solid mass?

Solid mass: Have your doctor show you the image that confirmed the above mass. Since it is a circumscribed mass surgical removal should not be a problem. The surgery is straightforward and the recover is early.

Need more info: Where is the mass? What organ? What symptoms or problem? What led your doctor to order an ultrasound examination?

My wife was just found to have a "lobulated hypoechoic mass" in her groin area? More tests are forthcoming but what possible diagnoses are there?

My wife was just found to have a "lobulated hypoechoic mass" in her groin area? More tests are forthcoming but what possible diagnoses are there?

Need to know organ.: In which organ of the groin (skin? Cervix? Uterus?) was the lobulated hypoechoic mass found? Usually, hypoechoic means that it's fluid-filled, ie, a cyst of some sort. Lobulated means that rather than being spherical or ovoid in shape, it seems to have two different lobes ("Mickey Mouse ears" in appearance). Some organs are prone to forming cysts; others don't (in which case it's more worrisome).

Your nodule: Is fairly small, and many physicians wouldn't even biopsy it unless it enlarged or there were other factors noted on ultrasound or lab. If your blood levels are normal, don't worry about the left lobe. Check w/your doctor.

2.5mm heterogeneous hypoechoic nodule and ovoid isoechoic bilobed mass with hypoechoicc band through it which may be fluid. The mass measures 22mm long?

It would help: To know what organ we are talking about. In the breast these findings have one meaning, in the liver another. So it would be very helpful to know where we are going

What is a hypoechoic mass on the back-side of the leg behind the knee mean?

Cyst: A Baker's cyst is a common finding in cases with a mass behind the knee and could be described as mentioned above. These are benign and are usually referred to an orthopedic surgeon for evaluation and treatment.

Need more info: You are describing an ultrasound finding, but it could mean different thing in different parts of the body. What body part contains the complex cystic mass?

BRCA stage3 FNAB report on MRM hypoechoic mass is fatty cells and stroma is there a possibilty to become malignant? Is it necessary to be removed? 47y

BRCA stage3 FNAB report on MRM hypoechoic mass is fatty cells and stroma is there a possibilty to become malignant? Is it necessary to be removed? 47y

It depends: I am not necessarily worried it may turn in to cancer but rather that the biopsy did not sample the tissue in that mass that is malignant. If the mammogram is very worrisome for cancer but the FNAB gave those results then your doctor may consider rebiopsy. Keep in mind FNA biopsy is less reliable than core-needle biopsy
