Nodules On Colon
Not necessarily: It is more likely to be a fibroid or something benign. Uterine cancer typically starts on the lining of the uterus and can then grow into the muscle. But if the lining was not thick on the ultrasound, then the chance of cancer is smaller. A nodule within the wall/ muscle of the uterus is more likely a fibroid. Please follow up w your gyn. ...Read more
Can happen.: Thyroid Cancer can spread(it is called Metastases) to many parts of the body including bones, Lungs and skin. This usually takes place when Cancer cells detach from a tumor, float in the blood and settle down elsewhere and make a new colony of Cancer in another organ of the body. This is quite common with Cancer, in general. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
On CT the doctors found multiple exophytic solid masses on bilateral kidneys. What is the likely diagnosis, cancer?
Could be: Different things- including benign tumors ( like lipoma, stromal tumor, adenoma, fibroma etc)- , however malignancy is something that is absolutely has to be ruled out. You need a biopsy of the kidney mass definitively. Discuss further with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Thyroid u/s finding suspicious for malignancy with small flecks of calcification in irregular hypoechoic solid nodule but 3 biopsies are benign
"Suspicious": doesn't mean there is cancer, it only means there is some probability of cancer, which could be as low as 10%. Biopsy is the gold standard. If the biopsy is negative and shows a specific benign process that accounts for the nodule(concordant), then it is likely not cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
35yo. F. W/ hyporthyroidism. colonoscopy/endoscopy 11/20/14. Diminutive 3mm polyp of sigmoid colon. Random biopsies of ileum and colon done. Cancer?
Sono showed dominant nodule is a heterogeneous nodule. Evidence of hypoechoic on left and right lobes. Multinodular goiter with all nodules over 1cm. Can this be thyroid cancer.
Stage 2b, triple+bc, CT =cysts on liver, slightly enlarged mediastinal node& calcif on thyroid node. What order most critical to rule out malignancy?
Need more info: Is there an older chest ct to compare the mediastinal ln to? That node is what I am most worried about. Pet/ct may help, especially if that node is bigger than 1 cm. Thyroid nodule should be evaluated with neck ultrasound and could be biopsied, but is not likely breast cancer metastasis. Liver cyst, assuming correct interpretation, is a benign finding and can be followed. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Lumpectomy and radiation last year. Was small amt of cancer in node. Now small shadow on upper right lung CT but radiation on left side. Lung cancer?
Difficult to say: small shadow can be many different things. In the absence of old studies this could have been there for years. Old study is crucial before jumping to conclusions. Old granulomas from old infections can present the same way. It is best to err on the side of caution and have a follow up study to see if it changes before jumping to conclusions. ...Read more
Lesion on mammogram. Nodule on xray. Clear ct. Swollen lnodes. Likely cancer? Lump w/o mobility nor pain. Pain @ site of nodule. Biopsy? Smoker 20 yr
Follow up CT: The importance of the findings may depend on why your ct scan was done. Current guidelines suggest Incidental single lung nodules between 4-6 mm in patients over 35 need follow ct scan, the interval between scans is dependent on the risk of cancer (smokers, exposure to asbestos, etc). 10mm(1cm) lymph note near trachea is upper limits of normal size. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Compression of cecum found on colonoscopy, ultrasound w/ cyst L ovary, abdomen CT clear. any other tests to take? Thoughts on cause of compression?
Not unless symptoms: If you aren't having symptoms from your "diagnosis" (compression of the cecum) then chances are that the finding is benign. It could have been from the ovarian cyst. (Once you reach menopause, ovarian cysts are rare & should be followed but at your age, understandable). It could have been from scarring. In any case, absent blood or constipation, it's not causing any harm and scans are neg. So relx ...Read more
Heterogeneous hypoechoic nodules in bilateral thyroid lower pole,
measuring 1.7 CM on the right and 0.5 CM on the left.is it can be cancerous?
Needs biospy: Small nodules can be cancer, but they would need to be biopsied. Many times, the nodules are just scars and not cancer. If you find nodules on a cat scan of your chest, depending on the size, they need to be followed to make sure they don't grow or look ominous enough to warrant a biopsy. What to do about nodules also depends on your risk for lung cancer, i.e., were/are you a smoker, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Got results for PET scan on lung nodules. Nodules are "undetermined" cuz of size but parotid glands on both side of neck showed "hot". Any relation?
Thyroid ultrasound1.4x1.1x1.1cm rim calcified nodule left mid thyroid.Well circumscribe hypoechoic1.4x1.9x1cm nodule w/mild internal flow.Is it cancer?
Let's find out: This may be nothing but a colloid nodule in a developing nodular goiter. If the radiologist can't rule out cancer, you may be getting a fine-needle aspiration. With this pattern of calcification, it's unlikely to be an aggressive tumor even if it is cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
