"mild bowel wall thickening involve sigmoidcolon might reflect relative underdistention. Less likely inflammation". is cancer? No real gastro symptoms

"mild bowel wall thickening involve sigmoidcolon might reflect relative underdistention. Less likely inflammation". is cancer? No real gastro symptoms

Typical scenario: Since we don't do any kind of bowel prep any more for routine CT scans, this kind of scenario is common. If the radiologist thinks the bowel looks a little too think, they will likely put in a statement like that as a hedge against potential pathology (and lawsuit). The thing is, could it be cancer? Yes, but the likelihood is low. If it was me, I would ignore it unless you develop symptoms. ...Read more

Evidence of mild wall thickening in descending colon, maximum thickness is 5.8 mm. What does it mean & is it a cause to worry? Is it related to cancer

Doubtful finding: It depends on why you had your Colon checked? So tell us your complete medical history and also what type of test was done which showed the colon wall thickening? . Any imaging study that shows slight/mild changes is of doubtful significance. So we have to rely more on your symptoms. Unless you have belly pain or problems with your bowel movements, you can ignore this finding. ...Read more

US gallbladder: contracted w/ mild thickening of wall. All labs r normal except ast/alt (2-3× increase). No pain, is hida scan really necessary?

US gallbladder: contracted w/ mild thickening of wall. All labs r normal except ast/alt (2-3× increase). No pain, is hida scan really necessary?

Basically YES.: There is both a compelling need to remove the gallbladder possibly and no evidence of a problem. Mostly, it is because the fine gallstones are running through a NON_WORKING gallbladder and irritating it and the liver. HIDA shows.... Without an exam, I can only give general information. Cannot say in your particular case, but generally, this is how to proceed. ...Read more

I would like more information on results from a ct that showed GI circumferential wall thickening and mild enhancement throughout the entire colon?

Your doctor is your: Your doctor can be your best guide. He must have ordered this test because of some suspicion based on your GI tract function or malfunction. Thickness of wall of the colon usually means inflammation but it is not diagnostic. A colonoscopy is a better way to determine what may be going on inside the lining of your colon. ...Read more

Usg-fatty infiltration in liver. Both hepatic biliary ducts nrml, cbd nrml, no focal lesion. Mild acalculous gb wall thickening|meaning? My lft is normal.

Why was US done?: Fatty liver changes are not uncommon with the growing problem of obesity in the usa. For the most part, your us would be considered normal, and with normal lfts, I would only focus on the cause of fatty liver disease, either due to being overweight, being poorly controlled diabetic, consuming alcohol, excessive fat intake. Start with dietary changes in consultation with a dietician/nutritionist. ...Read more

Interpret CT: mild thickening of distal sigmoid & rectal wall w/o adjacent fatty stranding. Loops of mild distended sm bowel w/o clear transition zone?

Diverticulosis: And possibly prior episode of diverticulitis could present this way. So too does infected segment or inflammation. The mild dilated small bowel in the current context is not as much of concern as the condition of the colon. Best discuss these findings with your doctor to put them into a good clinical picture.

Latest abdominal ultrasound reveals well distended gallbladder, fatty liver, mild gallbladder wall thickening. But lft normal. No pain. What can this mean?

Why did you get US?: If lfts are normal, and no pain, why get us?

Fatty liver means more fat stored in liver than normal, usually due to metabolic reasons - overweight, diabetes, alcohol overuse/abuse.

Gallbladder wall thickening is a weak sign of gallbladder disease in people with pain or tenderness - in this case it probably means the gallbladder could distend even more than it was. ...Read more

32 yr old male with UTI from e coli. What could cause this? Was at a water park recently. Ct scan good. Showed mild bladder wall thickening.

32 yr old male with UTI from e coli. What could cause this? Was at a water park recently. Ct scan good. Showed mild bladder wall thickening.

Not from water park.: It is extremely unlikely that you would receive any innoculation of bacteria from exposure in a water park that could traverse your (male) urethra to cause an infection. Without a stone, I would suggest that you were likely dehydrated. Have you had any infections before? You may need to be evaluated for subclinical prostatitis that could manifest as bladder outlet obstruction/bladder thickening. ...Read more

Can mild thickening and fat in wall of large bowel including sigmoid colon and right colon on CT scan be normal?

Can mild thickening and fat in wall of large bowel including sigmoid colon and right colon on CT scan be normal?

Yes: While fat within the intestinal wall is often thought of as a reliable marker for inflammatory bowel disease, studies have shown that in the absence of clinical or other radiologic evidence of inflammatory bowel disease, the presence of fat in the intestinal wall may represent a normal finding. There is also thought to be some association with obesity. ...Read more

Went to the ER with a lot of blood in my diarrhea. They did a CT scan w/ contrast. There is mild diffuse wall thickening of the descending colon and parts of the sigmoid colon. Also noted was a umbilical hernia 1.3cm. What could cause the blood?

Inflammation: The findings you describe is what inflammation or infection may show up on a CT scan. There are may causes of these findings that could be cause abdominal pain, blood and mucous in the stool, and diarrhea for example. To complete the workup, you need a colonoscopy for possible biopsy and and the colon can be visualized. Treatment then can be started. I doubt the hernia is a significant problem ...Read more
