Possible: The only way to make a definitive diagnosis would be with a laparoscopy. There are some medicines that in essence put you in temporary menopause and could help if the pain is due to menopause. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Mri (Definition)

Mri or magnetic resonance imaging is one of the more recently developed imaging modalities available to physicians. It uses powerful magnets to generate images. There is no ionizing radiation which is a major advantage over many other modalities. Mri is the best imaging exam that we have for most soft tissue and joint related problems. There are radiologists ...Read more

Shall it be endometriosis?The doctor told me maybe it's adenoma!

Large cyst: That is a pretty large cyst, a little too big to ignore. Depending on the results of the MRI you might be able to observe it a little longer or you might need surgery. Good luck. ...Read more

I had both US and MRI for lower abdomen at different offices. Doc read US said I have endometriosis. Another doc read MRI said no. Should I trust MRI?

Not diagnosed by MRI: The only way to confirm the presence of endometriosis is by direct visualization through video laparoscopy. Only in cases involving the ovaries where endometriosis can cause a so-called "chocolate cyst" to develop can it be seen with imaging studies such as CT, MRI, or ultrasound. However, this accounts for only a small percentage of cases of endometriosis. ...Read more

Could endometriosis recur as a cervical spinal mass firm, palpable, non painful & slowly grows? Cant do mri, but on CT seems to be normal tissue.

51 years, female. Sudden onset of dysmenorrhea. Pelvic MRI - small amount of free fluid. Is this endometriosis? can endometriosis make asthma worse?

51 years, female. Sudden onset of dysmenorrhea. Pelvic MRI - small amount of free fluid. Is this endometriosis? can endometriosis make asthma worse?

Pelvic fluid: A small amount of free fluid in the female pelvis can be a normal finding. Although there are also many abnormalities that are associated with fluid in the pelvis, including endometriosis, the fluid by itself does not indicate endometriosis or any other specific diagnosis. It must be interpreted in the context of your entire clinical picture and additional imaging findings. ...Read more

I had a complete hysterectomy 2004 due to severe endometriosis. No gallbladder (2012) having persistent pain. MRI & CT shows nothing. Can it be scar tissue or endometriosis causing the pain in RUQ?

I had a complete hysterectomy 2004 due to severe endometriosis. No gallbladder (2012) having persistent pain. MRI & CT shows nothing. Can it be scar tissue or endometriosis causing the pain in RUQ?

Adhesions: Post-hysterectomy w. RUQ pain queries cause. Med literature reports common evolution of peritoneal adhesions following any/all abdominal/pelvic invasive/surgical procedures. In my experience, many post-invasive-procedure "endometriosis" patients have IBS-like symptoms. Endometriosis is a theoretical disorder lacking firm pathological proof &, in my opinion, is likely an iatrogenic disorder. ...Read more
