Focal periductal fibrosis/oncocytic ductal metaplasia? Rheumo no saw actual biopsy report so no explain. diangosis w/sjogrens from test but am curious means

Focal periductal fibrosis/oncocytic ductal metaplasia? Rheumo no saw actual biopsy report so no explain. diangosis w/sjogrens from test but am curious means

Benign: This is benign. Oncocytic metaplasia of the salivary duct epithelium is nonspecific, as is fibrosis around the duct. As you've described it, this neither proves nor disproves your sjogren's diagnosis, but does remove concern that the biopsied gland was malignant. ...Read more

Gyno performed uterine biopsy but states not enough tissue gotten 4 diagnosis but biopsy results read "Normal ' Please help understand ?

Gyno performed uterine biopsy but states not enough tissue gotten 4 diagnosis but biopsy results read "Normal ' Please help understand ?

It is normal : We may think at the Time we are doing the biopsy that we didn't obtain enough tissue, however if the pathology report says it's normal then they were able to obtain enough tissue to get a good specimen. The pathologist would have let the provider know that there was not enough tissue to determine if the results were normal. So it sounds like everything is good. ...Read more

Pls hematologist opinion needed no clinical findings but 15 percent plasma cells mean what?

Pls hematologist opinion needed no clinical findings but 15 percent plasma cells mean what?

Clarify: I am not a hematologist, but I think you should clarify so that a hematologist can answer accurately. Where were the plasma cells found? Peripheral blood smear (i.e., a blood test)? A lymph node? Was it from the bone marrow (i.e., bone marrow biopsy)? Or some other biopsy? The interpretation will be vastly different depending on the sample and source. I'll pray that it's not serious. Best of Luck! ...Read more

I'm having adrenal insufficiency symptoms but inconclusive lab results, what does this mean?

I'm having adrenal insufficiency symptoms but inconclusive lab results, what does this mean?

Symptoms: I agree with Dr Knecht that this is a very rare disease, but as a general rule if adrenal glands are not working you would have low BP-causing dizziness when you try and get up, fatigue, poor appetite, skin changes. But these same symptoms can also be seen in other states too. ...Read more

What is " no definite liver lesion seens" on non contrast CT scan means? Us followed 3 mn later says no masses " why CT impression so vague

What is " no definite liver lesion seens"  on non contrast CT scan means? Us followed 3 mn later says no masses " why CT impression so  vague

Vague reports: The amount of vagueness in a report varies from radiologist to radiologist, but it is common. Generally, they are careful to use language that won't create any legal troubles for them down the road. In this case it is clear that both the ct and the ultrasound were negatie. ...Read more

Level 3 cervical lymphnode had abnormal morphology on ct, getting an excision biopsy soon. What do abnormal morphology mean? Doc suspects lymphoma

Level 3 cervical lymphnode had abnormal morphology on ct, getting an excision biopsy soon. What do abnormal morphology mean? Doc suspects lymphoma

Shape/Size Mostly: CT shows nodal shape, size and if it is has fat (a good thing). Most nodes are oval or kidney shaped. If they are round and big, they may be involved in something like lymphoma. Sometimes infection can do this too, so it is not a slam dunk. I'm afraid you'll just have to wait it out for the path report as CT is non specific. MR with fancy contrast is better but still not as good as Bx. ...Read more

Mri: sm. Amt of subcortical/periventricular signal. Meaning?  Mild encephalomalacia. Meaning? history sle, ra, meningioma sx. Age 59. Mri due to dizzyness.

Non-specific changes: I do not see anything serious in this report. Slight changes of this or that are commonly reported by radiologists. But it is your treating doctors job to put these in proper perspective. All i can see it is that these changes do not point me in any direction except that it can serve as a base line for future comparisons to see if there is any progressive changes in future. ...Read more

10 weeks pregnant. Iam having ovarian cysts of size 5cm. Doc did ca-125 test result 53.60u/ml.Vdrl serum non reactive. What does this means?

10 weeks pregnant. Iam having ovarian cysts of size 5cm. Doc did ca-125 test result 53.60u/ml.Vdrl serum non reactive. What does this means?

Need a more info: Ca125 is a measure that can be elevated in ovarian cancer, but it goes up normally in pregnancy. I would not be overly worried about that slight elevation.
A negative vdrl means that you do not have syphilis. All pregnant people are checked.
An ovarian cyst is normal and necessary in early pregnancy. It is the characteristics and how long it lasts in pregnancy that determine the course of action. ...Read more

Pls interpret. Liver ultrasound: normal size with probable diffuse parenchymal disease. This is after 8 cycles chemo, 1.5mos RAD for breast ca?

Nonspecific : This doesn't say much othe than the liver has some changes in its appearance that are uniform throughout the liver, not a single area which could represent a tumor. Best to ask the doctor that ordered the test to find out for sure. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Hx of seronegative RA yet recent labs show high crp/esr, absolute neutrophils and ANA by IFA but w/ no titer. What could that mean without a titer?

See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your lab results suggest active on-going inflammation. The titer of ANA is not particularly relevant. Wish you good health. ...Read more
