Measuring Colon Polyps In Dimensions
What?The uterus measures 8.3 x 4.0 x 5.0 cm in sagittal by AP by transverse dimensions respectively, anteverted. The endometrial echo measures 8.6 mm.
Uterus measures 10.8x4.0x7.1 cms endometrial echo complex measures 5mms in thickness. Subcentimeter nabothian cysts in cervical area noted?
Normal range: nothing to worry aboutGet a more detailed answer ›
U/S rpt:"Enlarged uterus lobulated contour&multiple uterine fibroids. LargestFibroids@uterine fundus' posterior wall&left fundal wall 3.1cm.Endometrial thickness normal,ovaries obscured byOverlying bowel gas" Any tests/scan/type of surgery recommend?
Fibroids: Are relatively common, and if you are not having any symptoms related to them, probably nothing needs to be done. It sounds like you had a transabdominal ultrasound and your ovaries could not be seen due to bowel gas. This happens occasionally. If your doctor wants to check your ovaries, you need to have a transvaginal ultrasound. If the ovaries are still difficult to see, MRI might be useful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Within the endometrial cavity there is a
heterogeneous isoechoic mass identified measuring approximately 1.4 CM in largest diameter. Is this bad?
Probably not: At your age, I would repeat the ultrasound after your next cycle. ...Read more

Colic-no: However, you must carefully follow up with your GYN to rule out a spreading tumor. ...Read more
35yo. F. W/ hyporthyroidism. colonoscopy/endoscopy 11/20/14. Diminutive 3mm polyp of sigmoid colon. Random biopsies of ileum and colon done. Cancer?
Based on ultrasound, the uterus is anteverted measuring 5.5 x 3.0 x 3.9cm the endometrial echo measures 0.5 cm in thickness. Is it normal?
Was this ultrasound: done for routine pregnancy? IF so, you are probably early on in your pregnancy. If it was done for GYN reasons, e.g. irregular bleeding or untimely bleeding, then it depends on what your normal situation is. Are you on birth control pills or implants? Do you have an IUD or planning on one? These measurements can be normal in the right setting, or not. ...Read more
I'm 19 and they found 2 inflammatory polyps, .59 cm hyperplastic polyp, and rectal juvenile polyp in my colon. What's the risk of future colon cancer?
Genetics consult: 19 yo woman PMH sig for iron deficiency anemia with colonic polyps found on virtual colonoscopy. You need a referral for a standard colonoscopy where the polyps will be removed and examined pathologically. With your history, you may have Inflammatory Bowel Disease and or some type of familial polyposis which may give you a higher risk in future but your expert GI doc will always watch out for you ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Just had colonoscopy. Sigmoid colon: a diminutive adenomatous looking polyp and a hyper plastic polyp. transverse colon: adenomatous polyp. Bad? Thnx
What doe these findings really mean? The uterus measures 9.7 x 6.3 x 5.0 cm in size. Endometrial thickness is 1.0 cm. At least 3 separate uterine mass
Uterus 60x40x45, myometrium is heterogeneous and there is hypoechoic region at the lower uterine segment. The endometrial stripe is measured at 10 mm.
Several causes: The first thing coming to mind with this info given your age is adenomyosis, a condition where uterine lining tissue is found throughout the wall of the uterus. Have you had MRI? This technique is good for diagnosis. Typically the cure is hysterectomy. Endometriosis may also still be a factor, a condition where uterine lining tissue is found about the pelvis. Follow up with your GYN! ...Read more
CT - 5.8x6.4cm rnd complex cystic mass in posterior pelvis inseparable from adjacent sigmoid colon. Demonstrates lobulated enhancing nodule centrally.
Not sure: A posterior pelvic complex cystic mass in a 65-year-old woman can have many potential causes. This needs to be checked out to find the actual cause and to consider treatment options. You should see a gastroenterologist for further evaluation, if you're not already seeing one. ...Read more
Abnormal gowths : Neoplasia is a general term to describe abnormal growth pattern, cancer-like, unregulated by normal bodily control systems. Some colon polyps are destined to become cancerous, some are not, so all polyps are usually removed when they are found so we can distinguish the difference under the microscope, not by appearance which can fool you. ...Read more
By scope vs. surgery: If your colon polyps are identified colonoscopically, they can be removed piecemeal by cold biopsy, or cauterized by wrapping a snare around the polyp & adding electricity. Even large polyps can be colonoscopically removed in their entirety by emr (endoscopic mucosal resection). Invasive adenomas, dysplastic polyps, & frank malignancies may require surgery (usually laparoscopic). ...Read more
Yes and No: Removal of colon polyps depend on their size. Smaller polyps with a narrow base can usually be removed easily at the time of colonoscopy. Larger polyps, and those with a broader base cannot be completely removed by colonoscopy at times, and may require colon resection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not typically: On occasion, polyps may infarct, twist on their stalk, bleed, or secrete (villous tumors of the rectum) with resulting "diarrhea." however, most polyps & colon cancers are identified (hopefully) before symptoms develop. Early detection at a smaller polyp size means higher cure rates, lower risk of malignant transformation or invasion, & improved survival before cancer develops. Get a colonoscopy! ...Read more
Prevention is key: Once you have been identified as a person in whom adenomas (pre-cancerous polyps) develop: 1) first remove the polyps; 2) schedule surveillance to rule out new polyp development; 3) prevention by behavior & diet. Current recommendations for the latter include: use of daily low-dose aspirin, weight management, reduction of dietary animal fats, optimized fiber intake, calcium supplementation. ...Read more
Not common!: Not common, but can have different types of colon polyps. Most common would be juvenile polyp. But cases with family history of familial polyposis will have higher incidence of adenomatous polyps (tubular adenoma). In addition there are other rare types with various syndromes.

Possibly: We don't really know because most people don't get colonoscopies in their 20's. Most people start at age 50 for colon cancer screening. There are some inherited syndromes like Familial Polyposis that predispose someone to polyps, but they are exceedingly rare. The polyp should be biopsied to figure out what type it is, which will be very informative. ...Read more
No: These are some predisposing factors for colon poliposis which is related to colon cancer: • hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (hnpcc, also known as lynch syndrome) • familial adenomatous polyposis (fap) • attenuated familial adenomatous polyposis (afap) • myh associated adenomatous polyposis (map) • peutz-jeghers syndrome (pjs) • familial juvenile polyposis coli (fjp). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
