Incidental: Most of the time they are incidental findings with no clinical significance. If the test was done looking for lymph nodes best will be to ask the ordering provider what to do next. ...Read more
Many: Unfortunately or fortunately, that is as vague a finding as you can have. It needs to be taken in the context of your general health, history of smoking, any physical finding, and the reason for which your doc ordered the scan. Very often these are benign findings and just need be followed up but your doc will have to decide what to do next. You need to discuss this with him/her. ...Read more

Vague: It is a very vague description that basically says the lymph nodes look abnormal in some way, but it's minimally abnormal and there is no pattern to the abnormality. Best to discuss with your doctor but usually, clinically this doesn't really mean translate into anything. (i.e. non-diagnostic, not really helpful for guiding treatment either) Hope this helps. ...Read more
Non specific: No specific ultrasound findings were present. Findings were not likely pathological and could be caused by a variety of things. ...Read more
Endoscopy: All that "nonspecific" means is that there were not findings that demonstrated a specific diagnosis. This does not mean that there was nothing wrong, it just means that there was nothing found to point in a definite direction. You may need more testing or a trial of medicine. Hope this helps. ...Read more
No diagnosis: Usually means sometime mild, of uncertain clinical significance. If something is non-specific, the endoscopist usually takes a biopsy to ensure it is nothing significant indeed. ...Read more
Not really: Not really. Those are just two different ways to describe the same abnormality seen in the ekg. ...Read more

It means: There are small areas of MRI signal changes in the white matter of your brain next to the ventricles and grey matter (cortex). Usually this is an incidental, age-related finding. Sometimes it can be a sign of other white matter diseases like MS. The finding has to be correlated with your clinical picture to assess the significance, so talk to your doc about the results. ...Read more
Medical Diagnostics: This is simply that the t waves seen on this ECG were not normal but they were also not diagnostic of any condition. Ekgs have specific changes that correlate with specific and commonly seen cardiac damage. This is just a way of saying there is nothing here that explains any disease. It is not to be worried over. ...Read more
Possibly surgery: It depends on what actually caused the gastritis but very commonly it's from decreased stomach motility and a failing gastroesophageal flap valve that, besides causing reflux (gerd), decreases the strength of the stomach to push the acid out of the stomach. Stomach acid is so strong that if it sits in the stomach too long it even hurts the stomach lining. This can be fixed by fixing the valve. ...Read more
ECG: Most twave changes are nonspecific, so we can't be sure. ...Read more
Not satisfying: I know my answer won't be satisfying to you, but "non-specific st-t wave changes" mean exactly what they sound like. The ekg has changes that are abnormal but are non-specific, ie they don't diagnose anything. For example, sometimes you don't feel good. You can't describe what's wrong - something is wrong but the problem is "non-specific". You just don't feel normal. ...Read more
Not much: Lymph nodes are filters of disease processes and can react to infection, surgery, trauma, and tumor, nonspecific inflammatory nodes are reacting to inflammation of some sort can be tonsilllitis, sore throat, viral infection etc all these nodes are benign and usually will disappear once inciting process has resolved. ...Read more

No: Based on the information you provided, this result does not indicate cancer, but an inflammatory condition (coccobacilli are bacteria). Gardnerella vaginalis is a coccobacillus that causes bacterial vaginosis. Another coccobacillus that may be found in that location is chlamydia trachomatis, a bacterium that can cause cervicitis (inflammation of the cervix) and pelvic inflammatory disease. ...Read more
If my papsmear results showed coccobacilli and nonspecific moderate inflammation, this this mean its cervicitis?

An international classification system of the different types of results is available online, known as the Bethesda System. The most common abnormal result to which you may be referring to is "atypical squamous cell" or ASCUS. You need to clarify the result with your doctor to know what you can do about it. Cheers. ...Read more

I am 541. Nonspecific white matter T2 hyperintensities. I was told this was normal. Should I seek a 2nd opinion?
Common finding: With regard to obtaining a second opinion, my first question would be why did you have an MRI performed in the first place? Did you review the MRI with your neurologist? Where are the white matter hyperintensities situated? Was the MRI an appropriate study for your condition? ...Read more

Diagnosed with "nonspecific mild salmon colored tissue in esophagus biopsied" what does the non specific part mean?
Not sure?: The finding of "salmon colored" mucosa in the esophagus is usually associated with Barrett's esophagus. The "non specific" descriptor may mean that the endoscopist saw something that looked like Barrett's and biopsied it. The pathologist examining the biopsy material will be able to answer that question one way or another. ...Read more
