25 y.O.Female annual urine test shows microhematuria. No pain, no symptoms, and no infection. Lab results say no abnormal cells. What's the cause?
Difficult to say: A work-up is recommended. A significant percentage of patients in your age group have a normal result on the tests and therefore no apparent cause. The first thing to do, in my opinion, would be to simply repeat the urinanalysis. Kidney stones are a possibility. Make sure the test wasn't done around the time of your period. If it was, the blood may have not been from your urinary system at all. ...Read more

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
3 mm wide mole removed. Pathology dysplastic but no mention if margins were clear. Why wouldn't pathologist indicate clear or not? Re-biopsy required?
Margins on mole: Margins are typically reported on most moles. However, if the initial excision was a shave or a close biopsy, where primary goal was to see if it was dysplastic and limit the size of the defect, then margins may not matter on the report. Best to consult with your dermatologist since an additional excision may be required. ...Read more
Radiologist who did breast biopsy said results were concordant.One year later, no growth/change.New radiologist said it may not be concordant.Now what?
It can be confusing: I'm guessing your biopsy was benign, the previous radiologist was satisfied by this, but the one reading your most recent film disagrees. In young women mammograms are very hard to read, and i suggest that if you have a 3d or tomosynthesis mammogram in your area you speak to your doctor about having this done as with this technology it is a much clearer study particularly with dense breasts. ...Read more
Staging: Various procedures will be done to determine how far the cancers has gotten, and the pathologist's determination of the type of cancer (there are maybe 100 for breast alone) will guide the decision whether or not to give adjuvant chemotherapy or some other intervention.

Had endoscopy ultrasound and doc said: "What you have overall is some very NONE specific finding that may suggest chronic pancreatitis but NO definite findings." I'm asymptomatic & never had pancreati?
Don't panic: I can see how that would be frightening to hear, considering you have no symptoms. Usually when "non specific" is used, it means there are some variations or signs that indicate something else MIGHT be going on that could be a normal variant or could be suggestive of the chronic pancratitis. No definite findings means they can't officially diagnose you with that. Your doc may want to monitor you.. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Esr test value was 41 what does that mean? They said I didn't have autoimmune but lots of inflammation
See details: An ESR of 41 is modestly elevated and by itself means very little. Because it is a test the lab needs to do promptly, must rheumatologists rely much more on the CRP. The ESR can be elevated at that level by numerous different causes and can even be seen in otherwise normal individuals. ...Read more
