Genetic testing: We can not conclude the genetic status of the baby based only on these findings. This typically would prompt further testing. There are blood tests that are commonly done to help assess the risk of the genetic abnormalities during the 1st and 2nd trimester of pregnancy. Contact your doctor to determine if these were done and schedule a visit to discuss the sonogram findings in detail. ...Read more

Multiple: Sgpt of 40 appears to be normal by our lab cut offs. Total protein of 8.1 is normal or minimally elevated, so your liver seems ok by these tests. Left kidney minimal fullness - that by itself doesn't tell me what the problem is and where it is located. ...Read more

So, ask and discuss this finding with your doctor so to reach reasonable possible explanation. Best... ...Read more

What is bilateral pelvi-calyceal system fullness (left>right)? What is d treatment of mildly dilated left ureter with left VUJ calculus (8mm)?

Kidney obstruction: Pelvi-calyceal system fullness refers to dilation of the internal structures of the kidney, usually caused by obstruction of drainage from the kidney. An 8 mm stone has a low likelihood of passing spontaneously, and will usually require treatment to remove it, in order to relieve obstruction of the kidney and ureter. This can be done using minimally invasive scope procedures, or shock wave treat.. ...Read more

What is mild perihilar fullness on the left is stable indicate?

Stable = good+/-.: Fullness means there is something more buldging/larger than expected in an area. Peri-hilar means the area where your bronchial tree in the lung area splits up into the different branches that go out to the lung. Therefore, you have a fullness of that area. Stable can be good, but what is the time frame? To be safe, check with the ordering doc to see if it needs further testing. ...Read more

My MRI results for left kneew reveals: mild thinning of the cartilage along the lateral femoral condyle with out full thickness defect or underlying reactive change. There is mild to moderate thinning of the medial compartment cartilage w/out full thickn

My MRI results for left kneew reveals: mild thinning of the cartilage along the lateral femoral condyle with out full thickness defect or underlying reactive change. There is mild to moderate thinning of the medial compartment cartilage w/out full thickn

You: You have several reasons for pain based on this report. Where is your pain? Along the inside, front, or back of the knee. Based on the fact that there is mild to moderate thinning of the articular (joint surface) cartilage in the medial (inside) compartment, I assume your partial menisectomy in 2000 was on the inside (medial) aspect of your knee. If that is the case, you have done very well for the past 12 years considering that you are a runner only to have mild thinning! Grading of arthritis in an MRI (where most likely you were laying down) is sometimes a little artificial so it is a little hard to tell how bad it really is. You definitely have thinnning, and it is probably a little more advanced in the medial (inside) compartment than for age, although basing this on a report is very subjective. The baker's cyst is located in the back of the knee, so if your pain is in the back, then this is the most likely the culprit. That being said, the baker cyst is a direct result of the joint being irritated, either from the medial meniscus tear or arthritis. Pain from the current meniscus tear should be along the inside of the knee, and it may be associated with instability, locking or catching. Based on this report, you should see a sports medicine professional to discuss your options. Good luck! . ...Read more

Left tonsil is swollen and full of white spots. It's painful at all times and makes eating unpleasant. Mild fever, earache, and headache also.

Might be strep: Sounds like it could be strep throat, which needs treatment. White spots on tonsils with a sore throat can be due to other causes, like viruses, but it is crucial to get checked for strep throat, because if it is not treated you may develop complications later on. So call /see your doc, or go to an urgent care center/ ER It can wait till tomorrow, as long as you have no trouble swallowing, etc. ...Read more

I pinched my nose and clear sinus congestion -now have fullness in left ear, slight ringing, mild pain. What percent chance do I have perf TM?

Almost zero: Under normal circumstances the eustachian tube allows drainage of fluid from the inner ear to the nasopharynx, behind nose. When the nose is pinched and pressure applied, air and sometimes fluid ise forced up the eustachian tube. This can result in feeling of fullness, ringing, and/or pain due to the increased pressure applied to the ear drum (TM). The chance of perforated TM is ...Read more

What does fullness of bilateral renal collecting systems mean?

What does fullness of bilateral renal collecting systems mean?

Renal anatomy: The solid tissue of the kidney is divided into an outer cortex and inner medulla. The blood is filtered and urine and is produced here. Urine is emptied into the collecting system of the renal pelvis. The ureters then transport urine to the bladder. Prominence or enlargement of the collecting system can sometimes indicate obstruction to this outflow. Bilateral means it is seen on both sides. ...Read more
