I've had this mass growing in my uterus since July of last yr. Nt visible on any scan. Doctors think I'm crazy I need to know wht to keep looking for.

Not a mass: How do you know you have a mass if it doesn't show on any scan?

I would guess that your uterus is enlarged without an obvious focal mass. An MRI or Ultrasound are great tools to see the uterus. If you have a mass in your uterus, both of these will show it. I am available for a second opinion. ...Read more

Scan showed a large mass high in uterus. Went for two ultrasounds 2 months apart and it's not visible. How can this happen? Can a mass disappear?

Ultrasound: An actual mass would not disappear. Either the first radiologist interpreted something as a mass that was not really a uterine mass. Or the second radiologist did not see the mass. Maybe the two radiologists can look at their readings together and give you an explanation. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Seen on ultrasound: Means they saw something (a mass)in the endometrium (the inner lining of the uterus).

Many times these are benign polyps but need to discuss with provider who ordered the test. Sorry not more helpful. Best of luck with this. Dr R ...Read more

What can cause a 21cm mass in the uterus/abdomen in a 57 postmenopausal woman?

What can cause a 21cm mass in the uterus/abdomen in a 57 postmenopausal woman?

Long list: Including ovarian cysts/tumors, uterine fibroids, enlarged lymph nodes, and a host of other things. I would imagine that a ct scan would help narrow the possibilities down. If the mass was discovered by an imaging procedure then the radiologist would likely provide the most likely potential cause. ...Read more

My test say, The uterus demonstrates heterogeneous myometrial echotexture most likely secondary to leiomyomatous change through a discrete mass?

Fibroids: Fibroids are growths of the uterus, or womb. They are also called uterine leiomyomas or myomas. The uterus is made of muscle, and fibroids grow from the muscle.

Unsure: If ultrasound isn't showing a mass, then it is unlikely that you are feeling something abnormal. Depending on your angle of trying to feel inside yourself, you could be feeling other anatomical structures. You could also possibly be feeling a full bladder (if in front), bowel movements (if in back), or your uterus could have a normal bend that you are feeling. ...Read more

I am getting the run around on my situation. They found a mass on bladder 1 CM and says no cancer only thru cysto. I have vag bleed & no uterus bloate?

2nd GYN MD opinion: You need to get a 2nd opinion on the vaginal bleeding from a GYN MD to rule out endometrial or uterine cancer. If the bladder lesion was NOT biopsied have a urologist redo the cystoscopy for a biopsy. At age 51 you should not be bleeding IF you are post menopausal. ...Read more

Malignant tumor removed surgically from sigmoid colon, the dr. Said he found a very tiny mass on the uterus (millimeters) which didn't appear in ct. Is this considered as metastasis or still stage 3?

Depends: The doctor should be able to tell you whether the uterine tumor was the same tissue as the colon or uterine was the mass on the uterus malignant as well?

So, it could be metastasis or a benign separate tumor. Her doctor should be able to give more details.

Good luck with her treatment. ...Read more

A small mass of. 5 CM in the uterus should it be removed? Does it interact with pregnancy? Thank you

Depends...: If the small mass is a fibroid in the lining of the uterus it could interfere with pregnancy. If the mass is benign (like a fibroid) and is in the muscle or on the outside of the uterus it most likely will not be of a concern for pregnancy and should not be removed. ...Read more

Hi I need t consult a gyncologist regarding hyperechoic mass outside uterus, I am 6 week pregnant?

Could be fibroid: A hyperechoic mass outside your uterus could be a pedunculated fibroid with some calcification. Bottom line, you need more information to understand this diagnosis. If it's a fibroid, no harm to pregnancy at all, especially if it's on the outside of the uterus. Obtain additional information. ...Read more
