An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

Seek ED F/U: You should seek an emergency room follow-up to evaluate your condition further. At least you know you have a probable fibroid, and that in and of itself may be causing you some pain.

If I have a transvaginal ultrasound done and they still say nothing is wrong, should I push for a pelvic laprascopy? Have all the symptoms of endometriosis and have had tests done and dr's tell me see nothing wrong. Have very heavy and painful menstruatio
Hmmm, this can be : A tough one. Painful , heavy menses can be remedied with a trial of birth control pills or other forms of hormonal suppression depending on your medical history, etc. Might be best to try this before pursuing laparoscopy. Okay to ask your doctor about their opinion on surgery. Answer will depend on your particular situation. Don't be afraid to bring it up and one can also seek a second opinion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can a ct/mri of the pelvis detect bladder cancer i pee a lot and i always have pain on my side and hip bw, rad, urine tests all negative i'm a female?
Sometimes: A ct or MRI can detect larger or advanced bladder tumors. However, many bladder tumors are subtle and found on only by looking inside the bladder (cystoscopy). Without blood in your urine on a microscopic evaluation, it is unlikely you have a bladder tumor. Continue to work with your doctor for the right approach and diagnosis. Eventually you may want to see a urologist or urologic gynecologist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have heavy periods with bad cramping and i pass quarter size clots and then have bleeding with more clots about mid cycle I have bloating and stmach pain MRI showed cyst and polyp could it be cancer?
Have biopsy.: It is unlikely to be cancer at your age, but you should have the polyp biopsied and removed. This will likely help with the heavy bleeding and give an answer about cancer. It is a minor procedure that can be done in the office sometimes, but likely an outpatient surgery. The cyst can be followed on ultrasound and may be normal function of the ovary, but if it grows or changes may removal. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Not really: The ultrasound used to look at the gallbladder is limited to a small area. It can see the liver and sometimes pancreas or kidney. Seeing the inside of the bowel is not easy on many types of abdominal imaging, but ct probably would be better. Although ct is not very good at looking at the gallbladder. ...Read more
