Biopsy:Cervical squamous mucosa w/ reactive epithelial changes and hyperkeratosis.Endocerv. curetting:benign endocerv. tissue.Can you help understand?

Biopsy:Cervical squamous mucosa w/ reactive epithelial changes and hyperkeratosis.Endocerv. curetting:benign endocerv. tissue.Can you help understand?

Doctor Speak: There is nothing scary in those results. "Benign endocervical tissue" means there is normal, non-cancerous tissue from the endocervix. "Cervical Squamous mucosa" is simply normal skin from the outer cervix. "Reactive epithelial changes" mean that they see evidence of a reaction by the skin to irritation or injury. Hyperkeratosis is an increased amount of keratin in the skin. ...Read more

1.Acute bronchitis, 
2.Allergic rhino laryngitis, CT scan report:mild mucosal  thickening in bilateral maxillary sinuses.Still same prb after treatment.

Allergy testing: In allergic rhinitis, it would not be unusual to only have mild mucosal thickening on ct scan. That's good news... You don't have sinusitis or some other process going on! if 3-4 weeks of regular nasal steroid spray doesn't help, (must be used as prescribe to work) then you may want to see an allergist for formal allergy testing. ...Read more

Vomiting found Hpylori infected endoscopy shows mild chronic inflammatory cell infiltrate superficial fragments of duodenal mucosa showing lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate in lamina propia. no malignancy.

Vomiting found Hpylori infected endoscopy shows mild chronic inflammatory cell infiltrate superficial fragments of duodenal mucosa showing lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate in lamina propia. no malignancy.

Can develop Ca: The presence of h pylori with inflammation is a precursor of the potential to develop a somach malignancy or duodenal lymphoma. The bug has a toxin that causes ulceration at specific sites in the stomach. When ulcer is healing it is not with normal cells surrounding the ulcer but from influx of marrow stem cells. The h pylori toxin then attacks the stem cells to transform them to Ca. ...Read more

Easy answer: Nasal polyps arise from the lateral wall of the nose, lateral to the middle turbinate and represent a de novo inflammatory growth. The causes are multiple, such as bacterial infection, fungal infection, and viral infection. Although the exact etiology is still an enigma. Nasal vestibular furunculosis is an infection of the front of the nose, the nasal vestibule, and is caused by S. aureus. ...Read more

In a esophagogastric junction biopsy, what does hyperplastic esophageal squamous mucosa with rare intraepithelial eosinophil mean ?

In a esophagogastric junction biopsy, what does hyperplastic esophageal squamous mucosa with rare intraepithelial eosinophil mean ?

Not much: This is a benign diagnosis. If there were more eosinophils, we'd be more confident that reflux is present. Hyperplasia doesn't really mean much here. The key is what the biopsy report doesn't mention -- there's evidently no cancer, no severe inflammation or tissue damage. This will be correlated with the other information and a plan implemented. ...Read more
