ADH (vasopressin) - risk marker: Long term, ADH (vasopressin) is a marker for elevated risk (2.5-4x's) and warrants increased screening (?Bmri) and possible chemoprevention. When found on a core biopsy, the standard is for open biopsy obtaining additional tissue to provide context for the pathology to exclude upgrading to dcis. It does not need to be completely excised with margins. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Several steps: The surgeon will discuss options for breast surgery. You may chose conservation or mastectomy. If there is plan for a lumpectomy a sentinel lymph node sample might be suggested. Your tumor will be tested for her-2, hormone receptors, and sometimes for an oncotype test to determine the best preventative treatment. The team should review all of the options. A genetics test might also be suggested. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with intestinal metsplasia 2 years ago. I had another gastroscope recently and apparently I don't have IM any more! Is IM reversible?
I have been diagnosed Glandular Hyperplasia with Focal Atypia and my doc suggests for Hysterectomy immediately what you say?
Maybe not always: uterine lining hyperplasia with atypia has a small chance of turning into uterus lining cancer, or actually hiding a small cancer already. So, yes, a hysterectomy is one option, but for some people that want to avoid hysterectomy, it is also ok to just get a D and C with hysteroscopy ( look inside). that way all the lining gets removed and tested. You will need to followup if that comes back ok. ...Read more

I had my whole thyroid removed for i was diagnosed having follicullar variant of papiilary carcinoma now my reports are clear but my TSH is 0.004?
Great: That's where you want your tsh. Your "normal" levels are different from the normal levels on the lab slip, as you need to be suppressed so that you don't stimulate any thyroid growth. Make sure you're on brand name T4 replacement and your doctor keeps close tabs on your level. Also check your serum thyroglobulin, which can be a thyroid cancer tumor marker and ultrasound. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia years ago, but my recent MRI shows normal, could i really have schizophrenia or is it something else?
Symptoms change: I would recommend a reevaluation if you're uncertain. Just because you were diagnosed years ago, doesn't mean the symptoms or disorder hasn't changed. Perhaps it is in a remitted state. Perhaps you have learned to manage symptoms so well they are no longer troubling you. Reevaluations in psych are quite common and part of the process in treatment. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I was recently diagnosed with IBS and I have been told I have a positive ana, what does that mean?
Probably nothing.: ANA is a non-specific test seen in numerous illnesses as well as in healthy people. By itself, it has no prognostic significance except in juvenile idiopathic arthritis. It is a frequent incidental finding when broad work ups are done for non-specific symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was diagnosed with lazy ovary but i speculate i may have endometriosis. My older sister had it. Is it hereditary?
I was told had prostatic hyperplasia in a ultrasonography examination . I have never had sex.So, how can I do?Thx~~
One possibility: A pitfall that may occur when a young man is being examined is that the large volume of prostatic fluid may fool the examiner. Both this and prostatic hyperplasia (an old man's concern) produce a symmetrically enlarged prostate. If you'd gone for a few days without masturbating, this is the likely explanation. Congratulations too on saving yourself for that one special girl -- excellent move! ...Read more

Test and reassure: Hi. Empty sella syndrome is most often associated with normal pituitary function. You should see an endocrinologist to be tested for pituitary hormone insufficiency (and/or elevated prolactin due to pituitary stalk effects). Empty sella may be associated with increased intracranial pressure, and the "empty sella" is due to CSF pushing into the sella from above. Usually not a problem. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with a thyroid disorder when i was about 14 i believe it is hyperthyroidism I am now 27 it has been years since I have had it checked.?
If I had idiopathic PE a year ago and it was caused by pancreatic cancer would I have symptoms of PC yet? Just scared I have PC.
I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism 2 years ago treatment successful but symptoms have returned what do I do now?
Possibilities...: It is possible that when you were first diagnosed, there was also a component of reversible bronchospasm present. Once that reversible component reversed, either on its own or with treatment, your lung function increased to the 50%. Another possibility is that you were still smoking at the time of the initial test and you have since quit, thus increasing your lung function! good news! ...Read more
