Neither: A lymph node located behind the ear is a postauricular lymph node and is not in the supraclavicular or posterior cervical chains. It would raise concern if it increases in size or new lymph glands appear. ...Read more

Swollen lymph node under jaw. Dr said its from a mild ear infection. Now just felt another pea sized lymph node which is a posterior cervical node. ?

May be normal.: Lymph nodes sometimes swell and get painful without an obvious cause. When nodes are "stony" hard, very large or progressively increasing in size and number we try to find a source. Localized lymph edema (LA) is usually related to trauma or infection in the local area as your doc suggests. Generalized LA may represent HIV / TB or infectious mono. ...Read more

Doubtful: This sounds like a sprained muscle/tendon, and should improve with time and ice andanti-inflammatories and avoidance of aggravating activities. If symptoms do not improve with time, then see a physician to evaluate for possible less common causes such as a disc herniation. ...Read more

What is a enthesopathic fibrocystic foci on the posterior of the humeral head (associated with lots of pain in my shoulder)?

Humeral Cysts: Cystic changes are seen in the head of the humerus on MRI scan of the mature shoulder in the bone marrow of the greater tuberosity where the rotator cuff tendons insert. In medicine, an enthesopathy refers to any disorder involving the attachment of a tendon or ligament to a bone called an enthesis. When inflamed it is called enthesitis. By age 50 partial tears of the RCT are seen on many MRI's. ...Read more

Type lll slap and posterior decentering of the humeral head with evidenceof repetitive trabecular impaction capsular destention meaning and treatment?

Bucket-handle tear.: A type III SLAP lesion consists of a bucket-handle tear of the cartilage around the shoulder socket (glenoid labrum) with an intact biceps tendon. This type of labral lesion is stable and usually treated by arthroscopic debridement, although you may need capsular tightening due to the repetitive strain on your shoulder capsule. Your surgeon will be able to answer your questions more specifically. ...Read more

Hello, I have had a CT scan of my head and neck. I understand most of what is stated below except the "The posterior indicating arteries are hypoplast?

Posterior arteries: Perhaps the reference was to the Posterior Communicating Arteries of the base of the brain called the circle of Willis. These smaller arteries connect the larger cerebral arteries and provide collateral circulation in case of blockage in a critical artery. CT scan may not show vasculature clearly and this finding may not be clinically relevant ...Read more

Hello,
I had a CT scan of my head and neck..I understand everything below except "The posterior indicating arteries are hypoplastic". ?

CT Head/neck: Probably is the "Posterior Communicating arteries" and the transcriptionist typed in Indicating, as I am not familiar with "indicating arteries." The posterior Communicating arteries are in the back of the base of the brain/skull and Hypoplastic is underdevelopment or incomplete development of a tissue or organ. This could be a congenital issue,...check with your Doctor to be safe for correlation. ...Read more

Headache Spine Surg: Symptoms are consistent with a spinal fluid leak. Bed rest, fluids, caffeine, and a compressive dressing are conservative treatment options. Headaches will usually resolve as scar tissue forms around the spinal cover (dura mater). Surgery to close the leak for persistent symptoms is sometimes necessary. A follow up consult with your surgeon is indicated. ...Read more

Diplopia, squeezing band of pressure in head, absent L posterior inferior cerebral artery. chol/hdl calc 6.7. FH mutation. could this cause stroke/tia?

Diplopia, squeezing band of pressure in head, absent L posterior inferior cerebral artery. chol/hdl calc 6.7. FH mutation. could this cause stroke/tia?

No: Minor anatomic variants of the arteries in the back part of the brain are no big deal. Sorry for misunderstanding -- I'm glad your FH / familial hypercholesterolemia was detected & can be managed. Without other findings, band and diplopia are unlikely to be serious ischemic disease, but are classic "functional". You're right to be concerned as such headaches, even if not "stroke", can disable. ...Read more
