Lobulated Soft Tissue Mass
There is a lobulated soft tissue mass noted in the para aortic region involving the ports hepatis. The mass is inseparable from the head of the pancreas. This lobulated mass measures approx 10.8 x 8.2 CM axially. What does this (likely) indicate? Cancer
Possibilities: A lot depends on the age of the patient. If it is a young woman, the most likely cause is called a pseudopapillary tumor. These generally have a good outcome. Other possibilities include pancreatic adenocarcinoma, neuroendocrine tumors, or benign processes like pancreatic rests, duodenal diverticuli, or cysts (pancreatic or biliary). Depending on the appearance, a biopsy is often helpful. ...Read more

Small lobulated heterogeneously enhancing isodense mass at upper pole of left kidney measuring 2.8x2.4 cm. Please help?
Ask your doctor...: More info on your general health profile will help decision-making.

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). ...Read more

Hi. Went to er for trouble breathing. Since I have history of pe they ordered a ct. No pe but radiologist stated. Incidental finding of lobulated density in soft tissue in the plsterior right breast. What does that mean?
Is it normal to have CT scan say stable increased lobulated density in anterior superior mediastinum may represent residual disease vs thymic tissue?

This density can be possibly be anything including normal, reaction to infection, thymic cysts, or hyperplasia from systemic disease.

Slightly lobulated cyst.... On right ovary. Can that affect getting pregnant. What is lobulated cysts. Measures 2.1 x 2.2
Sounds okay: "slightly lobulated" is a subjective term. It likely indicates that the cyst is not just a simple small bubble, but also that it is not worrisome in appearance. Most cysts are follicular (from egg follicle development) and will come and go. This process is normal and should not interfere with pregnancy. Of course, it's best to get clarification from your doctor. ...Read more
