What does it mean that I have a complex septated cystic lesion? It appears smooth but thickened 3 mm and demonstrates internal vascularity.

What does it mean that I have a complex septated cystic lesion? It appears smooth but thickened 3 mm and demonstrates internal vascularity.

You need: To be a little more specific. Where is the lesion? The ovary? Various types of cystic lesions can occur throughout the body, and location plays a large part in determining the diagnostic possibilities. ...Read more

I have two slightly enlarged level 2 (one on each side) lymph nodes — rounded in morphology, hypoechoic and no internal vascularity. Thoughts of course?

I have two slightly enlarged level 2 (one on each side) lymph nodes — rounded in morphology, hypoechoic and no internal vascularity. Thoughts of course?

Located? Use HTPrime: Lymph nodes without symptoms are hard to figure out. Causes for lymph nodes include old infection, lymphoma, other cancers / malignancy, inflammation, or congenital (you're "born that way"). The only way to know with certainty is by biopsy, but weigh risk of surgery w/ symptoms before going that route. Use HealthTap Prime to discuss your symptoms & get better guidance. Thanks for asking. Good luck ...Read more

Palpable abnormality left supraclavicular 2.1cm indeterminate partially calcified lesion w/internal vascularity, what does this mean??

Palpable abnormality left supraclavicular 2.1cm indeterminate partially calcified lesion w/internal vascularity, what does this mean??

Ask your doctor: Obviously someone ordered a test that showed this result because they were suspicious of an infection or a lymph node or even a cancer. You owe it to yourself and to that person to return for an explanation. Good luck! ...Read more

Postmenopausal with a complex mixed solid cystic lesion measuring 27mm on my left ovary with some internal vascularity. Should I be concerned?

Postmenopausal with a complex mixed solid cystic lesion measuring 27mm on my left ovary with some internal vascularity. Should I be concerned?

Very concerning : Please get evaluation to rule out ovarian cancer. If this is ovarian cancer I recommend follow up and treatment at a University Medical Center, instead of a community hospital. ...Read more

It was determined I have heterogeneously hypoechoic nodule 1.8 x 1.2 x 1.0 cm. There is internal vascularity, with no microcalcification. Concerned?

Depends: It depends on where this nodule is (thyroid or breast, etc), other characteristics of the nodule (such as well or ill-defined margins) and whether this nodule has been seen before or not. ...Read more

Does moderately severe cryofibrinogenemia always include cutaneous vasculitis, or can a person have only the internal vascular manifestations?

Does moderately severe cryofibrinogenemia always include cutaneous vasculitis, or can a person have only the internal vascular manifestations?

Don't know: Cryofibrinogenemia is a difficult diagnosis, but it usually starts with skin manifestations. That's likely because the vessels in the skin are very small, so changes in blood flow manifest early in the skin. I'm sure it's possible to have internal vascular manifestations as the first sign, but the cases i"ve seen have always had skin manifestations. I can't find any studies to say for sure. ...Read more

1.5x6x1.1 CM ill-defined heterogeneous hypoechoic area internal vascularity no central calcifications on a diffusely heterogeneous lobe. Is this bad?

1.5x6x1.1 CM ill-defined heterogeneous hypoechoic area internal vascularity no central calcifications on a diffusely heterogeneous lobe. Is this bad?

The ultrasound: Report should give recommendations on follow up or need for biopsy. Most thyroid findings are benign. When there is doubt, fine needle biopsy is often done as it is easy on the patient and often definitive. ...Read more

Was diagnosed with an isoechoic circumscribed solid mass in upper arm. Internal vascularity present. What does it mean?

Was diagnosed with an isoechoic circumscribed solid mass in upper arm. Internal vascularity present.
What does it mean?

The report: Should include possibilities for the mass seen on ultrasound. Soft, solid, masses often represent fatty tumors (lipomas). However, ultrasound can be limited when it comes to determining what a soft tissues mass is composed of or what structures it involves. Often, MRI is needed to clarify. ...Read more

Circular hypoechoic lesion (0.7 x 0.6 x 0.5 c) in midpole of right testicle. No internal vascular flow or calcification found. What is the diagnosis?

Cyst: Hypoechoic and avascular generally mean fluid filled. Although you definitely should be examined by a urologist, this most likely represents a testicular cyst. ...Read more

Pls. Exp. Scattered hyperechoic lesions within the liver parenchyma with the most well-defined in the right hepatic lobe with no internal vascularity?

Pls. Exp. Scattered hyperechoic lesions within the liver parenchyma with the most well-defined in the right hepatic lobe with no internal vascularity?

Radiologist: It's best to have your physician sit down with the radiologist and review your scan with him. The radiologist will interpret the findings and, if deemed advisable, recommend additional studies or referral to the appropriate specialist. Your findings suggest multiple benign liver cysts which may require no treatment or further additional testing except repeat follow-up scans in the future. ...Read more

Are hypoechoic nodules in the liver cancerous (left lobe and right lobe, with peripheral and internal vascularity)? Doc said they are "abnormal".

Are hypoechoic nodules in the liver cancerous (left lobe and right lobe, with peripheral and internal vascularity)? Doc said they are "abnormal".

Not necessarily: Hypoechoic means a solid nodule, rather than a liquid-filled nodule which would be a cyst. So hypoechoic liver nodules could be many things, including something called focal nodular hyperplasia, which is not cancer. Your doc may recommend more tests, or a biopsy. Cancer is on the list of possibilities, but it's not time to worry. It's likely to be benign given your age and health! ...Read more

46m,Ultrasound "There is a subtle and vague hypoechoic area, 1.5 CM w/out internal vascularity in right hepatic lobe of Liver, otherwise unremarkable"?

Not specific: Hypoechoic liver findings could be many things and can't tell based on that description. The lack of internal vascularity is somewhat reassuring. Your doctor will decide what to do with this but a follow-up with a CT or MRI to better characterize it might be a good next step. ...Read more

1.5x0.6x1.1.1cm ill-defined heterogeneous hypoechoic area w/internal vascularity no calcification found on heterogeneous right thyroid lobe. Explain?

1.5x0.6x1.1.1cm ill-defined heterogeneous hypoechoic area w/internal vascularity no calcification found on heterogeneous right thyroid lobe. Explain?

Thyroid nodule: You need to see your endocrinologist for interpretation of this. A 1.5 cm thyroid nodule probably should be biopsied, although the likeihood of this being cancer is low (probably less than 10%). A nodule among a multinodular gland is less of a concern, as is a nodule in a hashimotos gland. All this needs to be examined. ...Read more

Not yet : It sounds like you have a great doctor who is Falloeing thru on an abnormality. I would wait for the result of the MRI and consider your ulternate bed afterwords. Which may include do nothing or a GI consultation. Enjoy the Holiday weekend. ...Read more

Thyroid U/S showed L thyroid gland heterogeneous hypoechoic nodule w/ mind internal vascularity. What does all this mean? FNA recommended.

Thyroid U/S showed L thyroid gland heterogeneous hypoechoic nodule w/ mind internal vascularity. What does all this mean? FNA recommended.

Means abnormal test: Ultrasound is a commonly used test for detection of Throid nodules which are quite common. So when the ultrasound shows a Thyroid nodule, it needs to be monitored and often a Biopsy is required to find out if the nodule is benign or cancerous. FNA is one such technique for obtaining a biopsy for making a diagnosis. ...Read more

Complex cystic hypoechoic nodules right parotid gland with internal vascular septations &calcifications Echogenic foci Biopsy in the future. Inconclusive?

Parotid mass: Your doctor will probably want an FNA, fine needle aspiration to obtain cells that can be examined by a pathologist. Probably will be benign but your ENT may suggest it be completely excised. ...Read more

26 f w/ nodule that is solid heterogenous, increased vascularity, internal microcalcifications, 7x5x8mm, is this high risk malignant?

Not for sure: More than 95 percent of thyroid nodules are benign. Size is criteria for biopsy, greater than 1 cm. For thyroid nodules with a diameter of 1 cm or less, the sensitivity of microcalcifications for malignancy lower than in larger nodules. Should follow closely with repeat us exam. ...Read more

Endocrinologist can: You will benefit from seeing and being guided by a Thyroid specialist(called Endocrinologist).
A fine needle aspiration(FNA) biopsy may be required to determine if the nodules in your thyroid are benign or could be cancerous. Seek medical advice and obtain a second opinion if U R not satisfied and want to be sure/ want more certain guidance. ...Read more

Poss. Cancer? US of Right parotid gland. Complex abnormal cystic lesion. Demonstrates internal debris & septations w/vascularity. Etiology uncertain.

Hard to say….: That reading is definitely not a typical reading for a cancerous tumor, however in an abundance of caution you should probably get a needle biopsy and see an ear nose and throat, head and neck surgeon who is well-versed in parotid gland surgery. ...Read more

Hi, i went for an external and internal ultrasound, and they found 4 cysts. He mentioned one of them looked vascular. What does that mean?

More Info Please!: What is your age? If you are menstruating, where were you on your cycle when you were studied? Why were you sent for the sono? Presumably the, "Cysts" were cyclic ovarian cysts. The one that was vascular COULD be a corpus luteum which forms after an egg is released and before the menses start. It is likely that a followup sono will be done to confirm resolution (disappearance) of the cysts. ...Read more
