Had CT w/o contrast for kidney stones. Ct clear but still low back pn. Would CT have seen lymphoma mass if it were causing my pain? No history of cancer,

Had CT w/o contrast for kidney stones. Ct clear but still low back pn. Would CT have seen lymphoma mass if it were causing my pain? No history of cancer,

Don't worry: Yes, if you had lymphoma that was big enough to cause you pain, it would be visible on a ct scan! so I think you can rest assured that lymphoma is not causing your low back pain. This type of pain is common, and there are many causes. I wonder why you are worried about cancer? Maybe you know someone with lymphoma? Search healthtap for info about back pain and see what fits with your symptoms! ...Read more

Would a tumor caused from lymphoma, e.G. Node, etc, show up on plain xray and ct? Low back pn, clear l spine xray and CT to look for kidney stones, etc.

Would a tumor caused from lymphoma, e.G. Node, etc, show up on plain xray and ct? Low back pn, clear l spine xray and CT to look for kidney stones, etc.

Not XR: A x-ray would not be particularly helpful, unless it's a large tumor. Ct would be much better, and should be able to pick up enlarged lymph nodes. Watch out for contrast though. Kidney stone cts are done without IV contrast, but you will need contrast to look for tumor (at least much better at it). Talk to your doctor to make sure whether you are doing it with or without contrast. ...Read more

No. But: It sound as if you are describing musle spam. This may be resulting from a lower back muscle strain.

When lifting a backpack a sharp pain went through my left higher than low back. It has lasted all day and is not getting any better. What to do?

See Osteopathic Dr: You can try home remedies like heat or pain relievers, but the cause could be something easily found and fixed by osteopathic manipulation. A good history and phys, incl osteopathic hands-on exam might find the cause to be injured muscle, vertebral dysf, rib dysf, for ex. Some of these are easily treatable via manipulation. If it doesn't clear up in a day or two, i'd go see your local osteopath. ...Read more

Arthritis? See MD: Virtually all humans have low back pain from time to time. However, you're very young for this, and you also selected conditions of ankle pain and weakness. You might have a form of arthritis. (Contrary to what some think, arthritis is not only a problem in older people.) Or an infection in the spine. See a doctor soon. If you have a fever, do it right now; don't even wait overnight. Good luck! ...Read more

What happens during a low back mri?

What happens during a low back mri?

Well. A lot happens: You lie down on a table. In some places you go between two narrow plates. In some places you go into a tube. In general the tube machines are superior. You can have a open bore tube which is short or a long tube. Most (94%) prefer the short tube. Tiy hear various banging sounds for 10-45 minutes, some places take an hour. So ask and go to the place which takes less time. ...Read more
