What does PREDOMINANCE OF COCCOBACILLI CONSISTENT WITH SHIFT IN VAGINAL FLORA IS PRESENT mean?

What does PREDOMINANCE OF COCCOBACILLI CONSISTENT WITH SHIFT IN VAGINAL FLORA IS PRESENT mean?

It sounds like: You are reading a report, possibly from your pap smear.
Coccobacilli are bacteria. It is a general name for many of the usual bugs/flora found in the vaginal tract. It refers to cocci--bacteria with a spherical, ovoid or generally round shape. The "shift" terminology indicates there may be more of a certain type than usually seen. This may indicate bacterial vaginosis, but more tests are needed. ...Read more

Hematology: what is the cause of childhood lymphocytic predominance seen from 2 weeks of age until age 8?

Hematology: what is the cause of childhood lymphocytic predominance seen from 2 weeks of age until age 8?

Viral encounters: This is likely due to viral exposures early in life. The lymphocytes are the primary cell involved in the processing of viruses. Since early in life most of these encounters are new, there tends to be a lymphocyte predominance in the white blood cell differential. ...Read more

Help please! Is cancer predominance attached to the male or female gene?

Help please! Is cancer predominance attached to the male or female gene?

There is no separate: Cancer predominance gene attached to being male or female. Each cancer is unique, and may be more common in men or women depending on the cancer. For instance, men can get breast cancer but it is much more common in women. However lung cancer is slightly more common in men than women. This may have to do with men smoking longer than women than genetics however. ...Read more

Atrophy: There seems to be a word missing, but in general, you have reduced volume of the brain. Normal aging means that the brain loses volume, but there can be accelerated loss of volume with certain diseases, such as alzheimer's. Also, accelerated loss of volume in certain areas of the brain can predict dementia. It is best to speak to your primary care provider or a neurologist. ...Read more

Clinical correlation: Since the fine needle aspiration (small sample which may not be representative) is not conclusive, it is necessary that your physician weighs the options based on other clinical symptoms. However, with a large mass like this, it is probably wise to excise the mass with adequate margin an have it examined completely by the pathologist ...Read more

What happens if coccobacilli infections are not treated?

What happens if coccobacilli infections are not treated?

Bacterial shapes: Coccobacillary or coccobacilli just describes the 'shape' of the bacteria - what a doctor really needs to know is what species of germ is it, and what antibiotics will work against it. This is determined by capturing the germ and growing it in the lab, then we can find out it's strengths and weaknesses. There are Gram positive and Gram negative coccobacilli- so hopefully you could get more info. ...Read more

I had a paptest and the result shows coccobacilli and nonspecific moderate inflammation, is this cervical ca? : (

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?

If my papsmear results showed coccobacilli and nonspecific moderate inflammation, this this mean its cervicitis?

It might: Cervicitis means inflammation of the cervix, but "non-specific" means the cause of the inflammation was not evident from the tests that were done. Not all types of cervicitis require treatment, as it may resolve with time. ...Read more

Polymorfic flora with preponderance cocobacillus gram negativ with suggestive appearance of bacterial vaginosis ("clue cells").What it means? Thank you

Polymorfic flora with preponderance cocobacillus gram negativ with suggestive appearance of bacterial vaginosis ("clue cells").What it means? Thank you

Abnormal flora: It sounds like your vaginal bacterial balance is out of whack. You may need some antibiotics, and I would follow that up with a vaginal probiotic to help build up your healthy bacteria. Your doctor should know what to prescribe. When you've completed that treatment, you can try going to whole foods to find a "vaginal" probiotic. (it won't help much to take it orally. Must insert vaginally). ...Read more
