Uncertain: In this setting my concern would be whether you have a blood clot in the leg with a pulmonary embolus into the lawn. This may not be the correct diagnosis but it needs to be evaluated as it is a serious medical problem. See your position immediately and get this clarified ...Read more

Ultrasound of a firm immovable lump in my forearm two inches below my wrist indcated a nonspecific soft tissue mass. Report states that is projects separately from adjacent median nerve and is not attached to tendon sheath. Very worried it is cancer?

Ultrasound of a firm immovable lump in my forearm two inches below my wrist indcated a nonspecific soft tissue mass. Report states that is projects separately from adjacent median nerve and is not attached to tendon sheath. Very worried it is cancer?

Have it removed.: Really the best thing to do at this point would be to have the lump removed and sent to a lab for pathological analysis. This is not to say you have cancer by any means, but it's just to say that a definitive step to confirm or deny the presence of cancer must be taken at this point. ...Read more

I have a hard mass under the skin in my arm, it's about an inch wide. I noticed it probably 5 years ago when it was much smaller. Should I worry?

I have a hard mass under the skin in my arm, it's about an inch wide. I noticed it probably 5 years ago when it was much smaller. Should I worry?

Yes: Hi Judy. How much to worry depends a bit on your age and what it feels like. Could just be a swollen sweat gland or oil gland (hydradenitis). But it could also be a growth that should be removed. I would strongly suggest scheduling with your general practiioner who may want to refer you to a dermatologist or surgeon. ...Read more

Was diagnosed with a isoechoic circumscribed solid mass in upper arm. Internal vascularity present.
What does it mean?

The report: should include possibilities for the mass seen on ultrasound. Soft, solid, masses often represent fatty tumors (lipomas). However, ultrasound can be limited when it comes to determining what a soft tissues mass is composed of or what structures it involves. Often, MRI is needed to clarify. ...Read more

I have a large mass on my bicep. It can be felt when pushed it seems to swell and cause numbness in my arm. On my MRI, "no mass was detected"??

I have a large mass on my bicep. It can be felt when pushed it seems to swell and cause numbness in my arm. On my MRI, "no mass was detected"??

MRI can miss masses: In my experience, the most common soft tissue mass missed on MRI is a lipoma, a benign tumor made up of cells containing fat, which look very like the surrounding fat surrounding on MRI. The thin capsule may not be visible. Numbness may be due to pressure on nerve. Other tumors such as schwannoma are less often not easily seen on MRI. A surgeon is often the best person to evaluate these lesions ...Read more

Our 16 year old grandson has recently lost bicep muacle mass in right arm. He cannot even throw a beachball.?

Sudden loss?: Sudden loss of biceps muscle mass in one arm sounds like a tendon avulsion. The tendon pulls away from the humerus bone. Better take him to his doc. He might need an orthopedic consult. Facioscapularhumeral muscular dystrophy starts more gradually. Also it is inherited as a dominant condition so usually other family members are affected. See doc. ...Read more
