What can be done for a sclerotic lesion in the knee to relive pain or how can this be treated please?

Depends: If the sclerotic lesion is within the bone, it may or may not be the cause of your pain. If it is within the knee joint, it may be an osteochondritic lesion or arthritis, that at times needs surgery. Mri's are good tests that can help elicit answers as to the significance of lesions in a joint. To clear this up, i would see an orthopaedic surgeon. ...Read more

I recently had back x-ray 1.3cm L2 sclerotic lesion since 2013. Can this be cause of back pain?

Functionality : The most common causes of back pain are functional problems, like lifting incorrectly or poor desk position. The other is weak core and low back muscles. The best thing to attempt fist is low back strengthening exercises and see if that helps over time. Very unlikely it's the sclerotic lesion. ...Read more

2.2x0.5 sclerotic lesion at the neck of the fibula probably due to a bone island of doubtful clinical significance of the knee. Plz explaine meaning?

Benign: Means noncancerous. A bone island is an area of particularly dense bone with no malignant potential. They are usually found incidentally on x-rays and don't cause symptoms. ...Read more

What does this all mean please? Ct scan 1: "bone window images show a mixed lytic and sclerotic lesion in the body of t9"

What does this all mean please? Ct scan 1: "bone window images show a mixed lytic and sclerotic lesion in the body of t9"

Mixed density: This means there is an area in the 9th thoracic body (mid back) which has areas which are lower density (lytic) and higher density (sclerotic) than normal bone at that location. There are many reasons for this appearance. A thoracic spine MRI of this area, probably with and without contrast, may be helpful. ...Read more

They,"an oral surgeon" has found a sclerotic lesion on my right anterior mandible on CT scan.It has a differential diagnosi.Should I agree to a biopsy?

There are different: types of sclerotic lesions, some benign and some not. It is tough predict where on the spectrum yours is, without knowing the imaging features and clinical history. Sometimes it is tough even after careful evaluation of images. Additional imaging, such as MRI, may be useful to narrow the differential. Your doctor should discuss the risks, benefits,alternatives so you can make an informed choice ...Read more

I was told I have a 3.4cm mxed sclerotic lytic lesion on my right iliac crest and to have an MRI done.What does it mean?

I was told I have a 3.4cm mxed sclerotic lytic lesion on my right iliac crest and to have an MRI done.What does it mean?

More information: Mixed lesion consists of dense bone and areas of bone with reduced density. Mr suggested to better define contents of lesion, surrounding margins, and changes in the soft tissues around bone, and changes in adjacent bone marrow. A lot of times these lesions according to the imaging results eventually have to be biopsied to be specific about diagnosis, and confirm benign or malignant character. ...Read more
