In multiple myeloma does the absence of osseous lesions mean anything?

In multiple myeloma does the absence of osseous lesions mean anything?

Yes it does: Smoldering myeloma or mgus can produce high levels of m- protein but that does not require treatment. If there no bone lesions, you do not meet the criteria for myeloma yet, so active treatment for myeloma is not indicated unless you have bone lesions or other signs and symptoms of myeloma, (often called 'crab' criteria for instituting treatment.). ...Read more

My ct (abdomen & pelvis) results are: -hypodensity in the midline of prostate measuring 10 mm -suspicious osseous lesions what should I read from it?

My ct (abdomen & pelvis) results are: -hypodensity in the midline of prostate measuring 10 mm -suspicious osseous lesions what should I read from it?

May be stone...: Prostate stones of various size and amount are common, usually scattered in the vicinity between its central and peripheral zones, and usually carry no clinical significance such as not associated with cancer or infection. So, it may be just stone and leave it alone. But, if indeed highly suspicious for something unusual, follow the instructions of your doctor. Otherwise, don't worry for now. ...Read more

I'm considering getting osseous surgery done this friday. What can I expect?

Osseous surgery: Is usually done by a periodontist. Adequate anesthesia and sedation are used. After the access to the bone is established the dead bone and tissue are removed and the area is cleaned. The site is covered with a periodontal pack or dressing for healing and comfort. Instructions are given and explained. Good luck. ...Read more

What does 'prominent osseous spur that projects laternally bet left middle and inf turbinate to contact the lateral wall of left mid nasalcavity' mean?

Septal spur: The most common osseous spur that projects between the middle and inferior turbinate arise from the bony septum.

What is a posterior osseous protuberance from the posterior aspect of the odontoid?

Odontoid protuberanc: What is being described is excessive bone growth on the odontoid which is a bone unit at the top of the spine, at the base of the skull. If this extra bone is causing compression on the spinal cord then it might been to be removed. If there are no symptoms then one would just followed it with MRIs. ...Read more

Well circumscribed 1.5 x 2 on right side vertebral osseous hemangioma, what can be done?

Talk to your doctor: If it is a true hemangioma, then you may not need to have anything done. Usually these are benign lesions that do not need treatment. However, you should see your doctor or a Neurosurgeon to make sure that it is not something more concerning or that might need treatment. ...Read more

Waiting for appt w/ pulm trying not to over think can please explain "osseous density adjacent to rib" on cxr? I have sharp pain off on in area of rib

Osseous density: The radiologist who read would probably be the best person to ask. My guess that there may be some bone island adjacent to the rib - something you may have been born with. Usually, it is fairly well differentiated from any malignancy by the way it looks. If in doubt, a ct scan of the chest is usually the next step in helping sort it all out. ...Read more

What does marrow edema or focal osseous lesion mean on an MRI?

Marrow edema: Means abnormal fluid or swelling in the bone marrow. This is a nonspecific finding in and of itself, and can be due to numerous causes spanning the mundane to the malignant. Focal osseous lesion is also a generic descriptor of a focal abnormality of bone. It doesn't imply either benign or malignant. You need to talk to your doctor about it, ...Read more

Hi, I had a question. I recently had a whole body Nuclear Medicine bone scan done and the report says "Unremarkable tracer localization is seen in the osseous structures, what does this mean?

Hi, I had a question. I recently had a whole body Nuclear Medicine bone scan done and the report says "Unremarkable tracer localization is seen in the osseous structures, what does this mean?

Bone scan: The fact that the interpreting md. Stated it appears unremarkable is an indication that your scan is normal. The description about the distribution is the regular venacular describing the normal uptake by the bone (osseous means our bony skeleton) of the material that has been injected. ...Read more

A follow up MRI states marrow edema or focal osseous lesion. Have pain & weakness lots of it. What should be the next step in figuring what going on?

Not enough...: Information. What body part was imaged? How large is the area of abnormal MRI signal? What did the initial scan show and how has this changed? Over what time frame have any changes occurred? Where is your pain? Where is the weakness? How have these changed over time? First thing to do is talk to the physician who ordered this test for you. You and s/he can make a further plan from there... ...Read more

Clivus bone tumor fiber-osseous what are the symptoms?

Clivus bone tumor fiber-osseous what are the symptoms?

Clivus bone tumor: “Fibro-osseous”? Do you mean fibrous dysplasia? These tumors are very rare. Symptoms: headache (sometimes severe) near base of back of the skull. Pain made worse by moving the head/neck. Possible visual problems because of weakness of a nerve (cranial nerve #6) that controls eye movement. The eye will cross inward toward the nose. Anyone with these problems should see his/her doctor. ...Read more

High grade osseous neural foraminal stenosis with cervical spondylosis mean?

High grade osseous neural foraminal stenosis with cervical spondylosis mean?

Pinched nerve: Cervical spondylosis is arthritis in the neck. Foraminal stenosis means narrowing of the space where the nerves exit the spinal canal, in this case caused by bone spurs from arthritis. After they leave the neck these nerves form the three major nerves of the arm, controlling feeling and movement. Stenosis can cause pain, weakness, numbness or tingling in the arm or hand. High grade = severe. ...Read more

What are osseous structures and why would they be "remarkable for patient age" on a CT scan? Is that bad or good?

Bones: Osseous structures refer to bony structures such as the skull, spine and bones of the limbs. I suspect what you are seeing is a typo. It is common for radiology reports to read "osseous structures are unremarkable". Please confirm with the Radiologist that interpreted the exam. ...Read more

What does hypertrophic change at the T9-T10 facets bilaterally -severe left, moderate right osseous neural foraminal stenosis mean? Lots of pain

Cause for back pain.: It means your main nerves coming from your spine that run through your vertebrae can be suffering of compression because overgrowth of the bony area is squeezing it/them. The pain is caused by the nerve itself that might be irritated by contact with the vertebra. Nerves transmit sensation so pain is triggered this way. F/u with your doctor to create a plan of action for treatment. ...Read more

I'm a 45 yo female. I had an X-ray done. It said osseous structures demonstrates a probable 1 CM lytic focus versus artifact overlying the clavicle.?

Real vs artifact: Did you discuss with the MD who ordered the X-ray? Why was it ordered in first place? Lytic lesions have to be evaluated farther. First repeat the film make sure it's truly there. If it is, you need to have more studies done to determine what it really is. ...Read more

What does hypertrophic change at T9 &T10 facets bilaterally - severe left and moderate right osseous neural foraminal stenosis mean? Cat scan

Spinal stenosis: You have arthritis in the mid back (thoracic level 9/10). The joints that connect one level with the next are overgrown and compressing the spinal cord and pinching the nerves as they exit the canal. It is important to see a neurosurgeon for an examination to ensure that there is no neurological problems from this arthritis and to develop a treatment plan for pain relief. ...Read more
