What does this statement mean in lay terms.....Adnexa: 4.0 x5.7 x3.2 cm lobulated hypoechoic mas with small amount of flow on color doppler?

What does this statement mean in lay terms.....Adnexa: 4.0 x5.7 x3.2 cm lobulated hypoechoic mas with small amount of flow on color doppler?

Adnexa is Ovary/mass: You have a mass in or around your Ovary. Your Gynecologist can help you in terms of future monitoring or removal of this mass. Most such masses are Ovarian cysts. Surgical removal is sometimes recommended when the size is getting over 5CM...your's is nearly-5 CM, so get it checked by your gynecologist who ordered this test for you.

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).

Clinically palpable Lobulated solid hypoechoic mass within the left inguinal region measuring 4.2x1.5x1.3. What is that?

The ultrasound: Report should provide an impression of what this mass might be. A large lymph node, cyst, lipoma, or hernia are possibilities.

More tests needed: It appears the next step would be to get a ct scan or MRI with contrast (if you can tolerate), as I am sure your physician or radiologist has already recommended/ordered. There are many possibilities and this is just a very scientific description of what is seen on the ultrasound, but the radiologist cannot tell you what it is yet. After the ct or mri, a biopsy or surgery might be necessary.

What is a lobulated heterogeneous hypoechoic nodule with scattered calfifications in the inferior right lobe of thyroid mean?

Thyroid nodule: The appearance of the nodule in an ultrasound or ct is explained here. The purpose is to follow up and rule out cancer.

What is a lobulated heterogeneous hypoechoic nodule with scattered calicifications in the inferior right lobe of thyroid mean?

What is a lobulated heterogeneous hypoechoic nodule with scattered calicifications in the inferior right lobe of thyroid mean?

Thyroid Nodule: Thyroid nodules are very common. About 70% of the population has a nodule (many don't know it). About 5% of nodules are cancerous, which is why we care. Unless there were concerning characteristics on the ultrasound like microcalcifications, >1cm, taller than wide or increased blood flow or you have a family history or radiation exposure, typically we just follow-up with an annual ultrasound.

Breast u/s: well circumscribed hypoechoic solid nodules slightly lobulated wider than taller 2cm x 1cm and 0.84cm x 0.47cm means??

Breast u/s: well circumscribed hypoechoic solid nodules slightly lobulated wider than taller 2cm x 1cm and 0.84cm x 0.47cm means??

All of those: Ultrasound features point toward a probably benign etiology, possibly fibroadenomas (a common benign nodule). Management is usually short interval follow up in 6 months or needle biopsy for confirmation.

Lump armpit 1month ago and still there. Ultrasound say 2.3cm 1.6 0.6 lobulated. Hypoechoic. No vascularity. Follow up US in 2 months. Benign or bad?

Lump armpit 1month ago and still there. Ultrasound say 2.3cm 1.6 0.6 lobulated. Hypoechoic. No vascularity. Follow up US in 2 months. Benign or bad?

Follow up: Ultrasound good to do. If still there needs a core biopsy with ultrasound guidance. Can't tell if good or bad at this point. Please make sure to follow up with your doctor.

Scans showed a lobulated heterogeneous hypoechoic area in right breast. Awaiting FNA. Could this be serious? Strong family history of breast cancer.

Scans showed a lobulated heterogeneous hypoechoic area in right breast. Awaiting FNA. Could this be serious? Strong family history of breast cancer.

Lobulated mass: Most lobulated, heterogeneous, hypoechoic masses are benign, meaning non-cancerous in women of your age group. Follow up on the FNA though, and be careful in the future since you have a strong FH of breast CA.

I have a 3.0 by 1.6 CM anterior mediastinum lobulated soft tissue lesion in my chest area. Its changed shape and is bigger now. What could it be?

Not an issue for: This forum. It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you and looking at the imaging studies. Depending on the findings, a biopsy may be warranted. Please consult your doctor for a proper evaluation.

36 f have lobulated mass lesion approx 10cm in the left adhnexal region. The lesion is compressing n displacing the uterus to the right side. Wht 2 do?

See a doctor: There are many possibilities what this could be. You should have an evaluation with a gynecologist. Depending on your physical exam and radiographic/ultrasound studies, they may recommend a number of therapies from medication, to surgery, to consultation with another specialist. 10 cm is a good sized mass. This needs to be looked into further.

Do breast fibroedenoma occurs in 66 yrs of age? If so does it shows well lobulated mass lesion on scan?

Do breast fibroedenoma occurs in 66 yrs of age? If so does it shows well lobulated mass lesion on scan?

Yes,: Fibroadenomas can be present at age 66. And yes, it can typically be a well defined (circumscribed) mass with several lobulations. However, the appearance may not be specific, and needle biopsy may be indicated for confirmation and to rule out malignancy, so talk to your doc. Management depends on assessment of all the imaging features, and there is limited info presented.
